Cross River Partnership’s Healthy Streets Everyday (HSE) Programme has helped fund several Dr Bike sessions across London, including ones in The Royal Borough of Greenwich. The sessions aim to encourage people to get back on their bikes by helping with fixes and carrying out repairs. For example, the professional mechanics will make sure that each bike is roadworthy, tuning gears, adjusting brakes or pumping up tyres if necessary. They are also able to provide expert advice on where to go if there are any more serious problems that cannot be fixed there and then.
So far the HSE programme has funded the following Dr Bike activities in Greenwich:
16 Dr Bikes sessions
6 E-bike sessions
8 Fix & Ride sessions
