What is Dr Bike?
Dr Bike is a mobile repair service delivered directly to your door. A skilled bike mechanic comes to your workplace or event with a van packed with tools, grease and small spare parts to provide on-the-spot bike checks and minor repairs. Dr Bike is always free at the point of service to the “patient”!
Every bike gets a 20-point check, and we make any quick adjustments that are needed. Most minor problems can 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 identifies any further work that the bike needs from a local bike shop.
Who uses Dr Bike?
Dr Bike sessions are held at all kinds of commercial and public sector employers, schools, community groups, and events. It rewards current cyclists and encourages new cyclists to get on their bike. And, of course, Dr Bike helps make sure everyone at your workplace or event is riding a road-safe and efficient bike.
Regularly timetabling Dr Bike sessions is the best way to ensure their success – we provide posters and publicity to help with promotion.
Dr Bike costs £60 per hour for one mechanic. Most sessions are at least two hours long. The cost includes any small parts like cables and brake blocks that we fit on the day.
You can also book cycle training sessions along with Dr Bike – please contact us to discuss your needs.
