Dr Bike

Studentwithbike2

Dr Bike is a free on-site bike maintenance service run with local charity Nottingham Bikeworks. This service is open to all UoN staff and students. Sessions are run at locations on UoN campuses most weeks. 

The Dr Bike mechanic will give cycles a thorough check and make minor repairs, such as changing brake blocks and tightening brakes. Dr Bike will only work on clean bikes. 

The service and any parts used are free of charge

Currently, Dr Bike sessions are run on University Park, Jubilee Campus and Sutton Bonington Campus. Other UoN locations will be considered if demand is high enough. If you would like a Dr Bike session to be run elsewhere, email us.
