Get fixed up!
We know there are millions of unused and unloved bikes lying dusty and broken in sheds and garages around the UK.
Often, they only need a little bit of TLC, a new inner tube or maybe a drop of oil to get them fully functional and back into working order.
Cycling UK is involved in a number of projects across England and Scotland providing free bike maintenance to help get your bike fixed up and ready to ride.
Plus we have lots of tips and advice if you fancy having a go yourself, from repairing a puncture to indexing your gears. We’ve got you covered.
Repair Schemes in England
The Pumped Up Pop Up Bike scheme, funded by the Department for Transport, is supporting free pop-up Dr Bike mechanic events across England for people who need a little help getting their bikes back to working order.
The scheme will ensure everyone can get from A to B on two wheels, whether it’s for commuting, health and exercise or enjoying time with the family.
The pop-up Dr Bike sessions will be available nationwide and anybody will be able to access the upcoming events - including children - to help build on the cycling habits of the next generation.
Find out more about the service and where to locate your nearest pop-up mechanic.
Repair Schemes in Scotland
The Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme is providing free repairs and maintenance to people who need it most, to get thousands of people across the country on their bikes.
It’s funded by Transport Scotland and administered by Cycling UK to provide free repairs up to the value of £50. The coronavirus crisis has hit many people hard, so we know it can be difficult to pay for essential bike repairs.
If you’d struggle to afford bike maintenance right now, just contact your nearest participating bike shop or mechanic and get your repair booked in.
