Free Dr Bike sessions 2020

Posted on:

Borough residents can make the most of a free bike MOT service this month.

The Dr Bike sessions, run by Dudley Council’s road safety team and funded by Cycling UK allow borough residents to bring their bikes along for a free MOT, with minor repairs carried out free of charge.

There are sessions planned for Wednesday 26 August at Mary Stevens Park and Thursday 27 August at Himley Hall. Both sessions run from 9am – 3pm. Examination of the bikes and any repairs is free of charge and is carried out by trained technicians.

People can turn up on the day or book in advance by phone on 01384 815433 or email  road.safety@dudley.gov.uk

Councillor Karen Shakespeare, cabinet member for environmental, highways and street services, said:

The Dr Bike sessions are always really popular and help people feel confident taking their bikes back out onto the road.
With people being encouraged to travel by bike when they can, this is perfect timing. 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.

Further sessions are planned for the autumn.

Dr Bike sessions will adhere to government social distancing, with cleansing areas, ensuring bikes received and returned are wiped clean as appropriate.
