Stage 6: A Beginner's Guide to Bike Riding: Martin the Mechanic - The Lockdown Lowdown

By Dan and Wai

Dan and Wai chat to Martin - VeloTech Cheshire's mechanical maestro in chief. Has lockdown meant you've bought a bike or dug your old steed from the shed? Is it - or are you - rusty, dusty and in need of some TLC?Fear not - from tyre pressure and punctures to cleats and cleaning, Martin shares his top-tips for newcomers to the sport and Dan and Wai offer their wisdom and share advise from other members of the Cheshire Maverick Cycling Club.There's also a new challenge - how long will it take Martin and his magic thumbs to change an inner tube? Think Top Gear's 'Star in a Reasonably Priced Car' but for flats!With thanks to Martin at http://www.velotechcheshire.co.uk/
