Micycle rides are open to everyone, but please check that you are comfortable and confident that the ride will suit you.
Please make sure you have very good lights for any of the night rides.
See you all soon.
It seems to us that motorists are taking a bit more notice of us all. Maybe because there are so many of us out there - safety in numbers we say. However there are several things you can do to help protect yourself.
We asked our cyclists what were their top 10 safety tips for cycling in London traffic.
# 1 NEVER undertake a bus or lorry and watch out for them turning left in front of you.
# 2 DO wear a helmet –
If you need convincing see this appeal from James Cracknell
# 3 Do NOT wear headphones.
Every bike needs attention from time to time depending on use and style of ridding.

We are a partner shop for the Government's Cycle to Work initiative.
Cyclescheme is the UK's number one provider of tax-free bikes for the Government's Cycle to Work initiative. It's a brilliant programme where everyone wins - employees make big savings on new bikes, employers get a healthier workforce and save money too.
We have spent years researching the best answer to this question. As part of a two year project sponsored by the Department of Trade and Industry we looked into the feasibility of developing a new storage system for home use. Along the way we discovered some surprising results that in part led the way to this whole Micycle venture .
We even come out and cut off those pesky locks that you lost the keys for!
Road, Off-road, City, Fixed wheel or Folding... with so many types of cycles out there how do you choose the right bike for you ? Come in and talk to one of our experts, we'll ask you some simple questions to determine what you should be looking at and give you some ideas.

The eminent professor of genetics, Steve Jones, will be speaking at Micycle N4 18th June, 7.30 till 10.00.
Steve Jones' new book No Need for Geniuses is centred around the science of the French Revolution. The work of the great chemist Lavoisier (who was guillotined) plays a large part. He is most famous as a chemist, but also has a close tie with the science of exercise, and indirectly with the Tour de France (drug abuse included).
Tickets will be £5 and refreshments will be provided: elderflowrer cordial, a glass or wine or a coffee cocktail.
