Free Half-Term Event – Be Bright, Be Seen!

As the night’s draw in and the temperature drops you might be tempted to lock your bike in the shed and hang up your trainers. But Winter doesn’t have to mean giving up on active travel.

On Wednesday 27th October, the Great Park Consortium will be running an event in the Community Centre car park (1000 – 1600), with a focus on staying safe whilst walking and cycling over the Winter months.

Halfords mechanic, Dr. Bike, will be back with a free basic service for your bike (book your place here) and advice on any more significant work you might need to get your bike in shape for Winter. We’ll also have top tips for making it through to Spring on your bike!

We’ll be giving away vouchers for 10% off in-store purchases at Halfords as well as lots of safety accessories, including reflectors, slap wraps and more; great for ensuring kids can be seen on the way to school.

Primary school age children can also take part in our road sign design competition, with a chance to win a road safety bear! Further information on how to take part can be found here.
