We are delighted to announce that Dr Bikes will be available on the first Tuesday of every month. There is no cost to attend the Dr Bike session- however, our mechanics may need to direct you to a local bike shop or recommend a part that you need to buy
These are the upcoming Dr Bike sessions: At sessions marked with a *, police bike marking and registering are available.
At one of our vehicle safety events, you can get your cycle marked and learn how to keep your property safe. Cycle marking is an effective way to deter thieves and will increase the likelihood of your cycle getting returned to you if it is stolen.

At Dr Bike sessions, mechanics can check everything on your bike from wheels, brakes, gears and tyre pressure to lights, racks, pedals, saddles and more. By the end, your bike will feel loved and cared for. Any minor adjustments that can be made to your bike, will be done there and then. If there is something that can’t be fix on site, you’ll be told exactly what needs doing and a rough guide to what it should cost to repair at a bike shop.
All the mechanics are friendly and approachable and have a wealth of cycling knowledge, so feel free to pick their brains about our cycle skills training or other cycling activities.
For more information about Dr Bike sessions or to book a session for your organisation, contact us.
If you are an individual looking to improve your own maintenance skills, check our cycle maintenance classes page for details of our next free class.
If you want to attend one of our public Dr Bike events, there’s no need to book – just turn up on the day. If your organisation would like to arrange a Dr Bike, please contact us. Dr Bikes are used by a variety of organisations and employers to promote regular cycling and the service is great for community events and cycling awareness days.
