South Gloucestershire Council’s experienced cycle mechanics are here to give your bike some TLC. We provide regular community ‘Dr Bike’ cycle servicing in a number of locations across South Gloucestershire.
Each 30-minute appointment includes a safety check, basic servicing (such as adjusting brakes, gears, replacing cables and break blocks etc) and advice on any further work your bike may require.
All servicing is delivered following current social-distancing guidelines. Please book your appointment in advance as this helps us operate us safely during Covid-19 restrictions.

Local Covid-19 Travel Surveys
We want to find out more about how Covid-19 is impacting travel in new residential areas in South Gloucestershire.
Through Winter 2020 – Spring 2021 we are inviting a selection of residents in a number of new residential neighbourhoods to complete a short survey about how they are intending to travel in the future when social-distancing restrictions begin to ease.
Residents will be invited by letter to participate in the digital survey (or contact us to request a paper copy) and we will publish headline results from each area on our neighbourhood pages.
Transport investment in South Gloucestershire
The Around Your Way project is funded by the Department for Transport’s Access Fund, one of the many projects being delivered by South Gloucestershire Council to improve transport for residents.
South Gloucestershire Council are working with partners across the West of England to deliver the transport vision and investment set out in the current Joint Local Transport Plan.
