Keeping your bike well maintained is important for cycle safety and to make sure you enjoy your ride. You don’t need to be a trained mechanic to keep your bike in good working order, keeping your tyres pumped up, regularly checking the brakes, and making sure the wheels and handlebars are firmly secured are all key checks you can do at home. But if your bike has been a bit neglected in recent years, or if you’re worried something’s not working quite right, Hounslow Travel Active can help you get back on the road.
Dr Bike events are run throughout the Borough all year round – all for free! At a Dr Bike session, our mechanics will do a general check of your bike and carry out minor repairs, and provide advice on more complex repairs which may require the services of a local bike shop. It’s a great way to check that your bike is roadworthy and fit for purpose.
Dr Bikes are available at lots of community events throughout the Borough; take a look at the Active Events page to see upcoming Dr Bike events in Hounslow.
