It’s free, it’s useful, it encourages more cyclists to cycle more often!

This feedback from a cyclist having her chainguard repaired was just one of many compliments received at last year's popular Dr Bike events in the Royal Parks. Westminster Cycling Campaign have again be worked with the Royal Parks to organise one of the largest series of Dr Bike events in London:

These events will help cyclists to keep their bikes on the road this autumn by offering:

  • Dr Bike: Free cycle safety check and maintenance advice.
  • Cycle security marking: Get your bike registered by the Metropolitan Police to deter thieves and help police and retailers identify stolen bikes.
  • 'Exchanging Places' (at Greenwich Park and Regent's Park): Enabling cyclists to experience a HGV driver's view of the road and get a better understanding of the blind spots around the vehicle. This raises awareness of the dangers of collisions between cyclists and trucks.
  • Cycling information: Free maps, leaflets and advice, including information about considerate cycling in the Royal Parks. This is also an opportunity for cyclists to find out more about LCC.

This series of Dr Bike events in the Royal Parks follows an earlier successful series held in Bike Week in June.
