Didn’t get to work on my bike, thought I’ll start when people arrive but that didn’t work out.

If i don’t fix my bike by the next one, I’ll join.

This looks great!

I am currently looking into getting some safety gear and accessories for my bike like reflective stickers and spoke reflectors.

If other are interested we could get some together and share the cost. They usually come in bulk so it much cheaper that way :slight_smile:

Im happy to pencil in another date, I might have not been that honest about hte amount of work I have to do on my bike(s). The one Im riding now is borrowed because my longer distance bicycle needs to have ball bearings in the bottom bracket changed, I have been postponing it, somehow. Then I have a folding bike for zipping to shops locally or on train, which I mended really nicely, then got it out and got a puncture. All before we were moving flats, so most of my bicycle fixing endeavours undertook a defenestration.

Im trying to say. I will be there next time unlesss its a Wednesday, Im generally free other evenings.
