The Big Bike Revival will provide Free repairs and maintenance at any of our Dr Bike sessions that will be taking place at the Pemberton Centre in Rushden on Saturday 30th October.

Come along and get your bike fixed up for free! Please see below the dates of the sessions, you can pop your bike along anytime on the dates below, within the time slots.

The free pop-up Dr Bike sessions will help sort out those loose brakes, jumping gears and flat tyres so that old bikes at the back of the shed can have a new lease of life.

We will spend a maximum of 30 minutes per bike and carry out a full safety check and some minor repairs.

You can just turn up with your bike or you are welcome to book your time slot if you would like to guarantee a time. Children's and adults bikes are welcome.
