Dr Bike sessions

We run two monthly free Dr Bike sessions in the borough, and you are very welcome to turn up to either without booking.

  • Outside Islington Town Hall on Upper Street: 4pm-7pm on the first Wednesday of every month, .
  • In the middle of Navigator Square, Archway: 4pm-7pm on the third Tuesday of every month.

STOP PRESS:  Win a bike light

Visit Dr Bike in Archway in December or January and you could ride away with a Beryl Laserlight worth £125!

With shorter days approaching Archway ZEN is giving away 3 Laserlights to help keep you pedalling in the dark.  These special lights project an image of a bike in front of you so you don’t get caught in a blind spot. You may recognise them from Santander Cycles.

There will be one guaranteed winner at each Dr Bike session on Tuesday 18th December and Tuesday 15th January, 4pm-7pm on Navigator Square.

We also organise pop-up Dr Bikes to support other events and organisations, so check our schedule at the bottom of this page to see if there’s one happening near you.

At our Dr Bike sessions, our 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 we can make to your bike, we do there and then. If there is something we can’t fix on site, we’ll let you know exactly what needs doing and a rough guide to what it should cost to repair at a bike shop.

All our 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 bicycle maintenance classes page for details of our next free class.
