£500 of top Raleigh kit

The Wharf - - Front Page -

Just be­cause sum­mer is fast dis­ap­pear­ing in the rear-view mir­ror and au­tumn com­ing into clear view, it doesn’t mean that it’s time to ditch the bike and head back to the bus or Tube.

There are tons of phys­i­cal, men­tal and en­vi­ron­men­tal ben­e­fits to rid­ing a bike and to help get in the sad­dle The Wharf has teamed up with iconic, Not­ting­ham-based bike maker Raleigh, to of­fer read­ers the chance to win a Raleigh bike plus ac­ces­sories up to the value of £500.

The choice of bike and ac­ces­sories will be the win­ner’s to make from Raleigh’s ex­ten­sive range, which in­cludes ur­ban bikes per­fect for com­mut­ing, leisure bikes for ev­ery­day use, moun­tain-bikes for ex­plor­ing the trails, road bikes and clas­sic ladies’ bikes

To make sure you’re seen on the roads as the nights draw in, you could also add in lights from Raleigh and choose from a se­lec­tion of hel­mets to make sure you have the best pro­tec­tion.

To make sure you stay safe on the roads in au­tumn, here are a few tips from Raleigh to keep your bike in tip-top con­di­tion:

Keep it clean: Reg­u­larly clean off mud and salty water which, if left, will cor­rode

the mov­ing parts on your bike. Lubri­cate: Af­ter you’ve washed it down, lubri­cate the chain so that it moves smoothly. Ser­vice the bike: Check the brakes, gears and chain set and tweak as nec­es­sary.

Stop the splash: There’s a lot more water on the roads in win­ter and, if you don’t want to cover your­self in spray, then fit mud­guards.

Get a grip: Tyres take the most pun­ish­ment and, in win­ter, there’s noth­ing worse than mend­ing a punc­ture at the side of a road on a cold, wet evening with frozen fin­gers. Make sure yours are in good con­di­tion.

For a chance to win the prize just an­swer this sim­ple ques­tion: Which city is Raleigh based in? a. Nor­wich b. Not­ting­ham c. New­cas­tle
