Valentines Gifts

13th Feb, 2018

Love it or hate it, this particular date (14.02) comes around like clockwork every year – and like many other promotional dates, the hype is getting bigger and bigger.  Whether you’re drowning in abundance of chocolates and flowers, or dodging Cupid’s Arrow – don’t forget your truly greatest love – your bike.

We’ve gathered some ways for you to ‘woo’ your bike the Valentine’s Day:

  1. Get Soapy!  Whilst the worst of the Winter weather is done with, set some dedicated time aside to focus on the wellbeing of your bike; grit and mud will have taken its toll on your poor bike – so dig out the brushes and some nice smelly soaps and make your bike do a bunny hop with some rough lovin’…
  2. Get in all the Nooks and Cranny’s…  Make your bike rise and shine with a polish to spouse up any scratches.
  3. Lube it Up!  You can never have too much of the good stuff – and it avoids the risk of friction between the pair of you.
  4. Splurge on It.  Go big or go home – or accessories with a little bling; it’s the thought that counts really.
  5. Listen to It.  I know you can hear it, but are you really listening...  Don’t be guilty of selective hearing when it comes to any rattles.
  6. Use Protection.  It saves the both of you a lot of cleaning up!  Mud guards are a must.
  7. Dress to Impress!   Get yourself a gift; match your kit to your bike this year and show your bike off with some custom complementary kit.
  8. Take It on a Date.  It’s cheap too!  Go a for some rumble (maybe not any tumbles) around your favourite trails and top it off with some coffee and cake. Mmmm.
