Run by Cycle Training UK, our free Dr Bike event will ensure that your bike has a thorough check for any problems, gets basic maintenance carried out and advice for repairs on serious issues. This will help you stay on two wheels as well as help safeguard you when on London’s roads.
At these sessions, the mechanics will always 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
Also, depending how long it takes to complete the above 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.
The event is a ‘drop off & collect service’ - bikes should be dropped off at the Bankside Community Space between 8:30am and 11am and collected between 4:30 – 6pm. To book, simply fill out your details on the form to the right of the screen, or email bc [at] betterbankside.co.uk for more information.
