If you can’t ride your bike, we’ll help you clean it

You’ll be riding your bike less than usual during these uncertain times, so why not give it the clean of its life?

We’re giving away a top notch bike cleaning kit from Green Oil, a British company that claims to make the world’s greenest bicycle maintenance products.

Green Oil has been fighting the use of carcinogenic PTFE and petrochemical pollution. The harm they do in a workshop environment, in your garage, and to the rivers and seas can last for years. As a result, the company uses recycled (not just recyclable) plastic in its bottles and plant-based fully biodegradable formulas.

The bumper cleaning kit we’re giving away includes two bottles of  Green Oil Wet Chain Lube, two bike armour anti-rub plates, eco bike cleaner, degreaser jelly, an EcoRag cleaning cloth, Ecogrease and an FSC certified bicycle brush. And when you’re finished with it, the packaging tub includes a seed pack so you can use it to grow your own vegetables.

Protect your bicycle

One cycle insurance policy appears much like another, but the devil is the detail. How much excess you will be charged is just one of the things that varies wildly between providers. Another is so called ‘new-for-old’ replacement – many insurers use this term, but if your bicycle is more than a few years old, devalue it severely. This means you are left out of pocket when you come to replace it.

ETA cycle insurance has a low excess and offers new-for-old for life – however old the bike, if it’s stolen you get enough to buy a new model. Furthermore, every cycle insurance policy you buy from us helps support the work of the ETA Trust, our charity campaigning for a cleaner, safer transport future.

Cheaper bike cleaning solution

If you’re not lucky enough to win the bike cleaning kit, we think we’ve stumbled upon a cheap, quick, efficient and non-toxic alternative that costs £3 per bottle.

Method multi—purpose cleaner is aimed at kitchen use but it does a marvellous job of blasting through road grime after a mucky ride. We like it because the ingredients are biodegradable. And some are derived from corn and coconut so as an added benefit, your bike will never have smelled better.

    I don’t know if this current global crisis is Mother Nature’s way of telling us to change, but these products, the decreased use of cars and increase use of bicycles are all small steps in the right direction…..

    Thanks for bringing them to our attention ETA, keep up the good work.

    I assume I’m far too late to add my name into the hat?
    (I usually wait for the newsletter via email, but guess that has been on hold hence I missed this fine give-away).
