Winter can take its toll on bikes, that’s why Barclays have launched a two-month season of free bike clinics for London cyclists; help you get your bike summer ready.
The clinics, which are run by social enterprise Bikeworks, were launched off the back of research that which showed a shocking three in five (57%) people are riding bikes that aren’t fit to be on the road. The checks will be positioned along key commuter routes every Wednesday evening (17:30-19:00) throughout May and June. Anyone can turn up and have their bikes get a free once-over by a qualified mechanic, as well getting bike maintenance tips in an effort to increase road safety.
The first bike clinic took place yesterday, 8th May, and will be running every Wednesday until 3rd July in Tower Hamlets, Kensington and Chelsea, Lambeth and Hammersmith and Fulham.
