Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme

With the impact of Covid-19, we know it can be difficult to pay for essential bike repairs right now. The Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme is providing free repairs and maintenance, to get thousands of people across Scotland on their bikes.

Cycle repair for those who need it most

The Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme will help fix flat tyres, loose brakes and clunky gears to get folk pedalling again.

The coronavirus crisis has hit many people hard, so we know it can be difficult to pay for essential bike repairs right now. If you need a helping hand to get your bike into shape, this scheme provides free repair and maintenance work up to the value of £50.

Whether you’ve got an old bike in the shed that needs attention – or the one you’re riding requires some care – you can access a quality mechanic to get your bike repaired, safe and back in use.

It’s a simple process – just contact your nearest participating bike shop or mechanic and get your repair booked in.

All cycles are welcome in the scheme including adults’ and children’s bikes, e-bikes and non-standard cycles e.g. tandems, tricycles, handcycles and side-by-side cycles. Manual wheelchairs can also be repaired through the scheme.

Interest in the scheme has been extremely high and some bike shops are currently at full capacity. If they are unable to accept new bookings at the moment their pin on the map will be coloured grey. We have new bike shops joining the scheme regularly, so if there isn’t one in your local area yet please do check back. The scheme will be running for a number of months, so please be patient with our hard working bike shops if you can’t access a free repair right away.
