Win a green clean for your bicycle

green bicycle cleaning kit

This time of year is hard on the commuter bicycle, but help is at hand with this bike cleaning kit from Green Oil.

Road grime and mud contribute to the wear and tear of drivetrain and other systems on your bike so cleaning becomes a ritual that’s especially important in winter months. Helping to ensure that bike cleaning remains as environmentally benign as possible is Green Oil, a British company that claims to make the world’s greenest bicycle maintenance products.

ETA cycle insurance

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

Included in the bumper cleaning kit that we are giving away are 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. The packaging tub includes a seed pack so you can use it to grow your own vegetables when you are finished with the cleaning products.

To enter the draw to win the £85 cleaning kit, simply leave a comment at the bottom of the page and we’ll pick a name at random next week.

Protect your bicycle this winter

On the face of it, one cycle insurance policy is 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.

  51. Georgina


    I cycle along and park my bike next to the Thames so even if I don’t win this package I’ll be buying Green Oil in the future to make sure I don’t contribute to harmful substances entering the river. I also love the fact that this package even comes with seeds to grow plants!
