Dr Bike will provide an on-site bike maintenance service, giving your families’ bikes a thorough check and making minor repairs, such as changing cables and tightening brakes. Dr Bike can only work on clean bikes.

Qualified technicians will show you how to check a bike is safe to ride, in order to eliminate problems and make your families’ bike’s work properly for longer. They will cover things you should check before each ride, what the parts of your bike do and how to mend punctures.

Stockport Community Cycling Club will lead a 3.2 mile ride around the local area taking in Alexandra Park and Cale Green Park. Children over the age of 9 are very welcome provided they can cycle the distance, wear a helmet and children (under 18 years) must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.
