The original Green Oil chain lube was created after a ride through the river Quaggy - and a failed search to find a petrochemical free lubricant. Simon created the Green Oil formula in his last year at University, and through testing in Lords Wood Southampton, it worked.
Many big corporations use PTFE in their lubes. This makes a carcinogen in its production, and does not biodegrade. They still sometimes claim their formulas are biodegradable though.
Green Oil UK Ltd makes the only genuinely green range of bicycle maintenance fluids made in the UK, and the greenest in the World. We're a commercial partner Friends of the Earth
and our formulas work well. Green Oil chain lube gives in excess of 125 miles between applications, that's a performance beating many toxic chain lubes.
If you think its wrong to put petrochemicals on a bike, want packaging that's actually recycled not just 'recyclable', then you've come to the right place.
We use 27 different plants and natural ingredients for our fully biodegradable formulas.
That's better for your skin, and the environment.
Get your local bike shop to clear out the toxic petrochemical products, and to stock Green Oil.

A clean bike is a healthy bike. Keeping your bike clean generally makes it run more smoothly.
At the least, wipe down your chain with a rag after riding. If you properly degrease your chain, it reduces grime build up, and therefore friction. A clean chain lasts longer, and a clean bike feels great.

Its good to give. The Eco Rider Deluxe set is a great gift, for friends, loved ones, or the in-laws. It contains our best award winning Green Oil products.
The tub can't be recycled (most council's don't take polypropylene, or plastic 'type 5' to most people). So, to get around this moral dilemma (we don't put 'please recycle' on everything from dodgy plastic to nuclear waste like some other brands), we've included a pack of seeds! These can be grown in the tub after, to grow your own salad or herbs!
Eco Rider Deluxe set Contains: - Green Oil chain lube
- Bicycle Brush
- Two bike stickers
- Green Clean
- Clean Chain
- Tub for water...
And a pack of seeds! rrp £34.99
