Cycle Maintenance Services


Full bike safety check and maintenance service

Available from Pontcanna and undertaken by our fully trained bike mechanic. If you would like to book your bike in, please contact our cycle mechanic at

N.B. There are times in the year when we are extremely busy and we may not be able to undertake this service.


Doctor Bike Sessions

If you have a bike needing some TLC bring it along to one of our Doctor Bike sessions. Held on select Saturdays throughout the year, our mechanic will give your bike a safety check, carry out any minor adjustments possible and advise on the condition and parts that require replacement if necessary.

You will be charged for any parts we fit but we do not charge for the labour. We do ask that you make a donation to Pedal Power.

If the bike needs more work than we can do in such a session you can book it in for a full service or repair as listed below.

Check our Events Calendar for the next Doctor Bike Session.


Services and Charges

Below is our list of services and charges. We are able to fix most problems. If what you need is not covered please ask for an estimate.

All prices quoted here are as a guide only. Customers will be charged as appropriate where repair jobs take significantly longer than normally estimated.

All prices, unless otherwise stated, are exclusive of parts. Extra parts and spares will be charged for as appropriate.

Where parts need to be ordered, the job may take a little longer, you will be advised as necessary.

All prices are inclusive of VAT. However, where the service or repair is to an adapted cycle then VAT can be exempted. Please ask Cycle Shed for the appropriate form for you to register as being exempt from VAT.
