Brakes are good. Probably the most important part of the bike, assuming you want to stop before the river at the bottom of the High Street hill and generally avoid crashes.
Wivenhoe Bike Kitchen is doing brakes this Sunday (8/9/2013). How to check that they're safe and easy tweaks to keep your brakes working as best they can.
As ever there'll be cake, tools and spare parts available. Bring your own bike.
Wivenhoe Bike Kitchen is back in the newly refurbed Scout Hall (behind the Town Council Building), Sunday 8th September, 3pm - 5pm. It's free, just turn up.
