Bankside Community Space
It is essential to have regular check ups to maintain the durability of your bike and roadworthiness. At Better Bankside we offer all this for free to our members!
At our drop off & collect bike fixing service the Dr Bike mechanics will check:
- General roadworthiness
- Brake pads & cables are functioning properly
- Gears are functioning properly
- Wheels are spinning/aligned correctly
- Tyres well inflated and no indication of any inner tube punctures
Depending how long it takes to complete the work on your bike, the mechanics may be able to carry out additional repairs. Mechanics will also diagnose and note any serious problems which are too complex/time-intensive to fix at this session and advise what work needs to be done to correct the issue. All participants will receive a feedback sheet outlining the repairs undertaken and work still needed.
There will also be the oppotunity to have your bike security-marked and registered by the Metropolitan Police. This is open to everybody whether or not you bring your bike along to the Dr Bike session.
We have a limited number of spaces, and are first come first served, so book early to avoid disappointment!
