Whether you’re digging out your bike from your shed and in need of a full bike service or a seasoned cycle commuter looking for a regular health check, we’re here to point you in the right direction.
Free bike servicing
Some of the normally free bike health check programmes that are funded by local councils are currently on hold, but here are a few of our favourites that are on-hand to help you right now...
Barnsley Active Travel Hub
The Barnsley Active Travel Hub, located at Barnsley Interchange, is your one stop shop for fixing and maintaining your bike. Pop down to the Hub where a qualified mechanic can carry out a free check of your bike, to identify what work needs carrying out.
For safe and confident cycling it’s important to trust your bike is reliable and ready to go out on the roads and feel confident that you can fix minor issues (e.g. a puncture) in the event of it happening whilst cycling.
Cycling UK has produced five simple guides to bike maintenance, which cover the topics listed below. These can be viewed here.
