Thank you very much for your help with the bike. It felt like a new one when I got on it after your tweaks with the wheels, gears and tires. I really appreciate your help - thanks!
Dr Bike Mobile workshop
We offer timetabled weekly, monthly or even one-off sessions where we come to your place of work to service employees bikes. We offer many different levels of service from a safety check and minor service to a complete bike shop facility.
For most businesses we arrive using one of our specialist cargo bikes, pop up up a gazebo and set about working on employees bikes. We ensure there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions and employees are encouraged to watch the mechanic at work and pick up any tips and advice. We also offer maintenance ride support for events and we can also run drop in Dr Bikes at festivals, fairs and community events, helping to promote active travel.
We have a simple booking system to make it easy for you to manage and the cost can be borne by the employer or individuals. For more information please get in touch.

The team at Outspoken helped me build my Surly touring bike which I was making to ride from Alaska to Mexico City. From help and advice sourcing parts to little quibbles and problems that needed solving, they were great. All the tools I needed were on hand and it was fantastic to work in such a great space. The bike is still going strong - even the wheels I built!
