Doctor Bike

Doctor Bike is a free and fully-qualified bike mechanic service for staff and students. It regularly visits the University to help fix minor problems and provide maintenance advice.

The Doctor Bike mechanic will provide:
  • a free bike safety inspection
  • fixing of minor problems on the spot (brakes, gear problems, punctures)
  • advice on best practice for looking after your bike

Doctor Bike Sessions are completely free to all University of Edinburgh staff and students (you may be asked to show your staff ID or student matriculation card) and are provided throughout the year across all of the main University sites. NHS staff at the hospital sites can also use the service.

BikeRegister & D-locks

Subject to availability, staff from the University's Transport Office and/or Security Section usually attend Dr Bike sessions to provide free bike security marking to University students and staff.  At the events they also sell D-locks at cost-price for just £21.
