Dr Bike

Dr Bike is our mobile mechanical service delivered to your door.

Dr Bike is a service aimed at organisations, schools, community groups and event organisers who require a mechanic to come to their workplace/community/school/event and carry out basic bicycle servicing. A fully trained mechanic will come to your event with a van packed full of tools, lubricants and small spare parts to help you keep you pedalling.

We can send a mobile mechanic to your workplace/school/organisation/event to service bikes cycled in on the day.

Most minor problems can be fixed on the spot, with more major problems diagnosed and a bike “MOT” provided. Dr Bikes are used by a variety of organisations and employers to promote regular cycling and to reward cyclists. It even tempts new cyclists to cycle in for the day just to get their bike serviced.

Our experienced mechanic will carry out a 20 point check over, adjusting what is required and supplying and fitting small consumable parts, such as brake blocks and cables. Each bicycle will receive a detailed feedback form, informing the bicycle owner what work has been carried out and what additional work is required.

At the minimum you’ll get your tyres pumped up and your chain lubed, at the maximum, you’ll get new brake pads, cables and bit of a clean!

A regular timetable of Dr Bikes is the best way of ensuring its success and we provide posters and publicity free to help you promote Dr Bike.

Dr Bike is also great at outdoor events, fayres, etc, as an added attraction and to encourage people to travel there by bicycle.
