Doctor Bike

Doctor Bike is a fully qualified bike mechanic from The Bike Station, who regularly visits the University to help fix minor bike problems and provide maintenance advice.

The Doctor Bike mechanic from The Bike Station will provide:

  • a free bike safety inspection.
  • fixing of minor problems on the spot (brakes, gear problems).
  • a bike ‘MOT’ certificate to take to a bike shop for problems which cannot be fixed on the spot.

Doctor Bike Sessions are completely free to all staff and students (on production of a staff ID or student matriculation card) and are provided throughout the year across all of the main University sites.
