Free Dr Bike sessions

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.

The remaining sessions for 2020 are planned for Monday 26 and Wednesday 28 October (half term week) at Mary Stevens Park in Stourbridge and Tuesday 10 November at Silver Jubilee Park in Coseley. All sessions will be situated close to the hubs in both parks. Sessions run from 9am – 3pm. Examination of the bikes and any repairs is free of charge and is carried out by trained technicians.

Previous sessions have been fully booked and people must book in order to secure a place. Book 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.

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