The Big Bike Tune Up (BBTU) is a safety initiative designed to encourage new and past bike-riders to get their unused bikes out of storage and along to a BBTU event.
Mechanics at the BBTU event will give the bike a quick maintenance check to make sure it is safe and road-worthy.
At dusk and dawn, in rain and low light, make sure you're high-vis and have lights on your bike!
During autumn and winter, it is even more important for cyclists to be bright on their bikes and be visible to other road users.
Bike Wise and the NZ Police are running a campaign during autumn to promote cyclists’ visibility on our roads.
The Be Bright campaign runs from the end of Daylight Saving on 7 April until 30 June 2013.
