Free bike servicing on Mondays

Get your bike serviced for free!

Dr Bike is a free cycle fix-it clinic available to both UC staff and students. This service provides basic cycle maintenance and repairs such as tuning brakes, oiling chains and puncture repairs.

You’ll find our student mechanics, Gina and Fiona, on C Block Lawn every Monday from 11am – 12.30pm. Drop by and get your bike ready for summer! These sessions run during term time only.

To keep updated on Dr Bike sessions (and more!), follow the Sustainability Office on Instagram @ucsustain.

If you’re interested in seeing how Dr Bike fits into the bigger picture about planning for cyclists at UC, you might like to look at the UC Cycle Plan 2014-2022, which is currently under review.

Keep an eye out for these two on Mondays!
