Dr Bike was a mobile repair service delivered directly to your door.
A skilled bike mechanic would visit your school, community group, workplace or event with a van packed with tools, grease and small spare parts to provide on-the-spot bike checks and minor repairs.
Our mechanics gave every bike a 20-point check and made any quick adjustments that were needed. Most minor problems could be fixed on the spot, including fitting small replacement parts like brake blocks and cables.
A report – a sort of bicycle MOT – records any work carried out and identified any further work that the bike needed.
Who benefited from Dr Bike?
Dr Bike sessions were held at all kinds of schools, community groups, workplaces and events. It rewarded current cyclists and encouraged new cyclists to get on their bike.
And, of course, Dr Bike made sure everyone attending a Dr Bike event was riding a road-safe and efficient bike.
This project ended in 2020.
