Checking your tyre pressure

Are you interested in participating in Sky Ride Kent and the Sky Ride Local community bike rides but you don't have a bike or it is not working? If so, why not get involved in your local community bike workshop.

Community bike workshops will be bicycle recycling weekends aiming to get hundreds of bikes back in working order in time for the Sky Ride Local community bike rides in Kent. The workshops provide skills training, bike servicing and a source of affordable bicycles in the local community.
