Through the Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme, bike shops across Scotland are providing up to £50 worth of free bike repairs to those who need it most – whether it’s for an old bike that needs some work to make it roadworthy, or one that’s well used but requires some care.
Who can get their bike fixed?
People who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford these repairs. The COVID-19 crisis has hit many people hard, so we know it can be difficult to pay for essential bike repairs right now.
What repairs are covered?
- Punctures or old tires
- Problems with brakes
- Gears that don’t work properly
- Other issues that stop you using
All cycles are welcome in the scheme including adults’ and children’s bikes, e-bikes and non-standard cycles e.g. tandems, tricycles, hand cycles and side-by-side cycles.
How do I use the scheme to get my bike fixed?
Search for your nearest participating bike shop either online via the Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme map www.cyclinguk.org/ScotCycleRepair or look out for a bike shop displaying our poster or window sticker.
You simply contact the bike shop to book your bike in for repairs. They will look at the bike and let you know what work needs doing, before going ahead with any repairs.
