Free bike checks and repairs every Tuesday in September

Lambeth's Transport Department will be running free Dr Bike sessions every Tuesday 5:30-7:30pm in September. This is a chance to get your bike checked for roadworthiness and get minor repairs carried out so that you can keep on cycling through the autumn and winter months.

Free bike checks in Lambeth flyerThe free bike checks will take place at
  • The first Tuesday of the month – Waterloo
    (King's College, SE1 8WA)
  • The second Tuesday - Clapham Common
    (Cedars Road, SW4 0PN)
  • The third Tuesday - Brockwell Park
    (Lido, Dulwich Road, SE24 0PA)
  • The fourth Tuesday - Streatham Common Southside (SW16 3BT)
Most of the events will feature a Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) awareness element. An HGV will be on site for cyclists to experience the view from the cab and be advised on where to be positioned on the road for ultimate safety when sharing the road. At many sessions members of the Safer Neighbourhood Teams of the Met Police will be adding people's unique bike numbers onto http://www.immobilise.com/ and advising on avoiding bike theft.
