Dr Bike Events summer 2022

Posted on:

Dr Bike will be running free bike MOTS at parks across the borough this summer.

People can bring their bike or bikes along to one of the community-based events and have a trained bike mechanic check them over.


Any adjustments or minor repairs made are completed free of charge and in discussion with the bike’s owner.

Councillor Shaz Saleem, cabinet member for highways and public realm, said:

The Dr Bike sessions are always really popular and help people feel confident taking their bikes back out onto the road. With the summer ahead of us, this is the perfect opportunity to give your bike a onceover before heading out.
Our expert technicians will be on hand to give every bike a once over, undertake minor repairs and offer advice on bike maintenance and road safety.
