Event Support and Dr Bike
What is Dr Bike?
We will send our Mobile Cycle Mechanics to your event, community group, school or workplace to conduct bike safety checks with quick & easy minor repairs & adjustments of those bikes that have been ridden or brought in.
Most minor problems can be fixed on the spot, with more major problems being referred to one of our Cycle Hub sites.
Dr Bike is a great way of encouraging people to travel to work or school by bicycle and promotes bike safety through maintenance.
Who uses Dr Bike?
Dr Bike offers a point of interest & attraction, though a growing number of organisations and employers, conscious of promoting sustainable and active forms of transport and wanting to promote regular cycling use the service as a to reward cyclists or an introduction to our other Fleet & Mobile Mechanic Services.
Dr Bike events are known to tempt new or less frequent cyclists to cycle in for the day just to get their bike serviced and prompt a more permanent modal shift.
How much does Dr Bike cost?
The charge for Dr Bike is £50 per hour and we recommend a minimum of two hours on site and can be flexed in line with increasing demand. Additional mechanics are charged at £40 per hour.
The cost pays for the mechanic’s time and tools. Any big parts that need to be replaced are purchased in addition to the hourly charge and invariably are borne by the bike owner.
For an organisation wanting to encourage employees to cycle and happy to extend their support we can provide a budget to incorporate minor parts in an organisation’s offer.
All our mechanics are fully qualified and insured.
