Free Bike Maintenance

At Dr Bike sessions experienced cyclists and mechanics check everything on your bike from wheels, brakes, gears and tyre pressure to lights, racks, pedals, saddles and more. Minor adjustments to the bike are made there and then. If it can't be fixed on site, mechanics will let you know exactly what needs doing and a rough guide to what it should cost at a bike shop.

By the end, your bike will feel loved and cared for. Let's give our bikes some love!

Bike Sale

Bikes for Good Causes will be hosting bike sales on campus. Bikes will be reasonably priced as they are secondhand.

Bikes for Good Causes are a social enterprise located in Haringey that sells good quality, donated bikes and also provides a full bicycle repair and maintenance service. They are working in partnership with Action For Kids Charitable Trust which supports young people with learning disabilities. Any profit made goes back into the business to improve the range of services offered in their bike and coffee shop and also helps support Action For Kids in the excellent work they do in assisting young people to “lead the life they choose”.

Bike Marking

In partnership with the police, UCL Security regularly set up marking events to provide cycle security advice and offer security marking and registration onto BikeRegister's online database. Registering your bike helps police and retailers identify and verify the legitimate owner of bikes that have been stolen or are being resold.

Event Bookings

All these events operate on a first come, first served basis, so make sure to come by the event space at the beginning of the day to book a maintenance or marking slot, if you already have a bike, or to find the right bike for you.
