Residents who live in Moor Nook, Ribbleton, or in Larches and Savick are being urged to dust their bikes off and bring them to a special workshop for a safety check.
The council’s ‘bike doctor’ will be on hand to give bicycles a free check. He can also carry out minor adjustments free of charge.
Police officers will be carrying out free security marking at the events on Saturday. They run from 10am to noon at Lea Methodist Church car park, Birkdale Drive, and 1pm to 3.30pm at St Bernard’s Club car park, Elswick Road. There is also a 10am session at Moor Nook Community Centre car park on February 18.
