Cycling UK have launched their Cycle Repair Scheme to help get Scotland back on their bikes. The scheme is part of the Scottish Government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic and the need to provide more options to the public for travel and transport. A total of 30,000 repairs will be available across Scotland. The scheme is funded by the Scottish Government and is administered by Cycling UK.
The Coronavirus crisis has taken a toll on many people’s finances. So, 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. Repairs such as flat tyres, loose brakes and clunky gears are included in the scheme.
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. This initiative is open to bikes of all kinds whether it is an adult, child, tandem and so on.
Just contact your nearer participating bike shop or mechanic and get your repair booked in.
You can use the online map via Cycling UK to find your nearest Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme centre.
