Monday 3rd August saw the launch of the Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme at Bike for Good, alongside Cycling UK and the Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Michael Matheson.
The Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme will help fix flat tyres, loose brakes and clunky gears to get folk pedalling again.
The coronavirus crisis has hit many people hard, so we know it can be difficult to pay for essential bike repairs right now. If you need a helping hand to get your bike into shape, this scheme provides free repair and maintenance work up to the value of £50.
Whether you’ve got an old bike in the shed that needs attention – or the one you’re riding requires some care – you can access a quality mechanic to get your bike repaired, safe and back in use.
It’s a simple process – just contact your nearest participating bike shop or mechanic and get your repair booked in.
All cycles are welcome in the scheme including adults’ and children’s bikes, e-bikes and non-standard cycles e.g. tandems, tricycles, handcycles and side-by-side cycles.
The scheme is funded by The Scottish Government and is administered by Cycling UK.
