You will be asked for your contact details, so that we can book your bike in. These details will be covered by by data protection, and only your email address and postcode passed on to cyclinguk.org

Anyone! One bike per person, if you are a family, we would be happy to book these bikes in individually too.
The scheme is targeted at people who have a cycle but it needs some maintenance to get it back in use.
What type of repairs are included?
Basic service and essential mechanical repairs are covered by the scheme i.e. repairs that are necessary to make the cycle roadworthy and fit for purpose. The £50 can cover both parts and labour costs.

What happens if my repair is over £50?
