Dr Bike repair service

Bring your bike to our Dr Bike repair service for a check-up. The experienced mechanics check everything on your bike from wheels, brakes, gears and tyre pressure to lights, racks, pedals, saddles and more.

Dr Bike repair sessions are run across Enfield

Any minor adjustments that can make to your bike will be done there and then. If there’s anything our mechanics can’t fix on-site, they will offer suggestions for you to get your bike in safe, working order. All our mechanics are friendly and approachable and have a wealth of cycling knowledge so feel free to pick their brains about cycle training, safety on the roads or other cycling activities.

What are people saying about their experience of Dr Bike?

“I wanted to express my gratitude for the great Dr Bike initiative. We visited your team in Enfield this Saturday gone. I was extremely grateful for the safety checks, adjustments and advice we received for my child’s bike. The initiative really makes a difference, plus it increases our overall cycling confidence. Thank you.”

“Just brought my partner to the All-Ability Cycle Hub in Bush Hill Park. We tried a quadcycle(?). It was great craic and had lots of people trying out different cycles. Thanks to the organisers, everyone was lovely!”

“I just wanted to thank the Council for putting the resources together to keep our bicycles in order with your monthly cycle repair scheme.

By using the service I have also grown a will to learn more about bicycle repair, I know that in the past you had maintenance courses running throughout the Council, consequently, if those courses ever run again I would be very much interested in taking part. Thank you once again.”

“I would like to take the opportunity to compliment on the excellent service Dr Bike provides. It is great having them at Palmers Green Library.”

“I would like to very highly commend the two guys who gave advice assistance and repairs to those of us who attended on a cold wet day on Saturday 7th August from 11 -3…They both were incredibly helpful, appropriately friendly & dedicated (I’m unsure if they even stopped for their lunch)! Unfortunately I am unsure of their names but one was Spanish. Please pass on grateful thanks to them and perhaps they could be thanked in a special rewarding way. They were brilliant.”

“Received a great service outside PG library for the Dr Bike clinic. They fixed up my girlfriend’s bike excellent.”

“I visited Dr Bike last week and the service I received was amazing. He looked over my bike and carefully explained what the problem was and what I needed to do. Absolutely professional, friendly and extremely knowledgeable, but able to explain things in a way that was easy for a novice to digest! This is a great initiative. Long may it continue!”

“This email is to provide positive feedback on the fantastic Dr Bike service we received today in Enfield Town Park. The Dr Bike mechanics were more than happy to fix some issues on both of my sons’ bikes today, whereas a local bike shop had suggested we would have to wait 3 weeks for the same. I can’t recommend this service highly enough to all my cycling friends, and now my sons will be doing so too!”
