Bike maintenance and Dr Bike

Cycle maintenance courses

A limited number of basic maintenance courses are available from Bikespace. These courses would normally cost £125 but we're able to offer them free of charge thanks to our successful bids to the DfT in order to support the Plymotion programme. If you are interested in booking a place on the course please call Bikespace on 01752 500211 or email

Open Access workshop evenings

Look after your bike at one of Bikespace's free open workshop evenings where there are:

  • mechanics on hand for advice
  • work stands and benches
  • specialist tools
  • parts available to buy

These workshops will be held twice a month on a Wednesday evening and are aimed at people who have some knowledge already on how to fix a bike.

Attendees are required to book via the Bikespace website before attending. 1.5 hour slots will be allocated with a maxiumum of four people per session. More information can be found on the Bikespace website.

Dr Bike events

Free Dr Bike events are run at workplaces and community events around Plymouth. You can book a qualified mechanic from Bikespace to visit your workplace or event to carry out free routine bike safety checks for members of your business or community.
