Bike Week is an annual opportunity to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, the week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK, whether this be for fun, as a means of getting around to work or school, the local shops or just to visit friends.

Join Plymouth University to celebrate the week.

Have a bike in need of some TLC? Dr Bike will be on campus as part of Bike Week to check everything on your bike from wheels, brakes, gears and tyre pressure to lights, racks, pedals, saddles and more. By the end, your bike will feel loved and cared for. Any minor adjustments required can be done to the bike there and then. Anything Dr Bike can't fix on site they will let you know exactly what needs doing and a rough guide to what it should cost at a bike shop.

Checks will take up to 20 minutes.
