Free Bike MOTs

At the Hub, you can get your bike checked over for free by a qualified volunteer bicycle mechanic.  Running every Thursday, please drop your bike off at our free secure cycle parking facility by 11am and your bike will be looked over and adjusted in time for you to collect it again by 3.30pm the same day. There is a chance that we won’t be able to see to every bike in the event that we are inundated, however this has yet to happen.

PLEASE Give your bike a clean before you drop it off. It makes it easier to carry out the checks and adjustments and you get to see better results!

The Bike MOT includes:

  • A full ‘M check’ of the bicycle making sure that it is safe to ride
  • Gears adjusted
  • Brakes adjusted
  • A check of the condition of the bike and a detailed report on what may need replacing either urgently or someway in the future.  

Please note that we cannot install new parts onto your bike, either those that we have in the Hub or those that you have bought yourself.  This is not a replacement for a full service from your local bike shop, if you would like to know about bike shops local to yourself we’d be happy to advise.

If you are not currently a hub member then don’t worry, you can simply fill in one of our registration forms when you drop the bike off.

Please check our website home page and facebook page for any cancellations.
