Description

The Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme is providing free repairs and maintenance to people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford it, to get thousands of people across Scotland on their bikes.

Finances are tight for many people at the moment, so, it can be difficult to pay for essential bike repairs. If you need a helping hand to get your bike into shape, this scheme provides free repair and maintenance work up to the value of £50 for standard bikes and up to £100 for non-standard cycles.

Whether you’ve got an old bike in the shed that needs attention – or the one you’re riding requires some care – you can access a quality mechanic to get your bike repaired, safe, and back in use.

It’s a simple process – just contact your nearest participating bike shop or mechanic and get your repair booked in. Remember to tell them you want to make a booking under the Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme.
