Free Bike Maintenance Checks, 13-17 May

Take advantage of free bicycle maintenance checks on campus from 13-17 May 2024.

‘Dr Bike’ mechanic from Bike for Life South will be providing the free bike checks at Moulsecoomb, Falmer and City campuses.

The basic maintenance check offered includes minor mechanical adjustments and cycle advice including:

  • bikeability advice such as use of gears, brakes and on road safety tips
  • recommended bike shops and services
  • help with the comfort of your bike set-up/riding position
  • advice on locking your cycle and correct helmet fitting
  • bike servicing at a later date not covered by your 30-minute appointment.

It is expected that bike owners remain present when their bikes are being looked at, so they can benefit from the mechanic’s tips and advice on how to handle most basic repairs and maintenance checks.

The Dr Bike team does not provide a full bike service, but can give advice on whether such a service is required considering the condition of a bike. They can also recommend bike shops offering such services.

Appointments are available at the following times:

  • Moulsecoomb campus: 13 May 2024, 11am-2pm
  • Falmer campus: 16 May 2024, 11am-2pm.
  •  City campus: 17 May 2024, 11am-2pm
