Cross River Partnership’s Healthy Streets Everyday (HSE) Programme has helped fund several Dr Bike sessions across London, including ones in Tower Hamlets. The sessions aim to encourage people to get back on their bikes by helping with fixes and carrying out repairs.
At Dr Bike sessions, mechanics can check everything on your bike from wheels, brakes, gears and tyre pressure to lights, racks, pedals, saddles and more. By the end, your bike will feel loved and cared for. Any minor adjustments that can be made to your bike, will be done there and then. If there is something that can’t be fix on site, you’ll be told exactly what needs doing and a rough guide to what it should cost to repair at a bike shop.
All the mechanics are friendly and approachable and have a wealth of cycling knowledge, so feel free to pick their brains about our cycle skills training or other cycling activities.
