Give your Bike some Love 14/2/18

Carl Beck
City of Albany

City of Albany Staff are being encouraged to Give their Bike some Love this Valentines Day as part of the COA Heath and Well Being Fortnight.

A volunteer bike mechanic from the local Albany Cycling Club has been recruited to provide free bike checks and basic maintenance for staff who ride to work (or at least bring their bikes) on the day.

Tyre tread and pressure, front and rear brake adjustment, ensuring handle bars are aligned and secure, seat height adjustment and basic gear adjustment will all be checked for each bike, while the mechanic will also provide staff with advice on any other more significant maintenance that needs to be carried out by one of the local bike shops.

Other activities available to COA staff during Health and Wellbeing Fortnight will include basic health checks, skin cancer screening, art therapy & yoga sessions and EBike trials.
