This service is entirely FREE.

Active Travel Champions
The purpose of the Active Travel Champions project is to get more people walking or cycling to work through peer lead support. By actively promoting sustainable travel, people start to see this behaviour as normal.
We currently have over 250 Active Travel Champions in a range of businesses. From the largest employers in the region, to smaller businesses, across all sectors.
JOIN MY JOURNEY
joinmyjourney is a free service designed to help people across the West of England share their commute — on foot, by bike, or by car.
It’s available to be used for journeys finishing within the West of England (Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire).
Create hubs for your workforce to join, or link up with people who work nearby via local area hubs.
What is Dr Bike?
Dr Bike is an experienced mechanic that will come to your site to check over employees’ bikes, making simple repairs and adjustments to ensure they are in good working order.
- Sessions typically run from 10am to 2.30pm but can be flexible to fit your business.
- The mechanic will service around 8 bikes in a session.
- We recommend booking people into 30-minute slots prior to the session.
What will a Dr bike do?
The Dr Bike will attempt the following:
- inflate tyres
- adjust brakes and gears
- straighten wheels
- tighten and adjust parts such as handlebars and saddle, hubs, bottom bracket, headset and pedals
- check chain and sprocket wear, check and adjust cable tension and assess wear and corrosion
- check and re-fit mudguards
The mechanics will replace the following parts as a part of the service:
- inner tubes
- brake pads
- brake/gear cables, ferrules and end caps
- chain oil (dry lube in the summer and wet lube in the winter)
Please be aware that not all repairs will be carried on each bike every time. Sometimes the mechanic runs out of time. Also, sometimes things cannot be adjusted due to wear, corrosion or damage.
If required replacement parts are not available at the time of the Dr Bike session, or time does not allow for the required repair, then the bicycle owner will be told what parts or repairs their bike needs. This will always be done in a language that is easy and clear to understand and remember.
Please contact your local engagement officer to find out more and arrange a dr bike for your workplace.
