Resident ZEN members can book Dr Bike sessions for their communities.
Residents of Alva Court and Shire Court on Lower Clapton Road, Hackney were keen to hold a Dr Bike session to fix any issues caused by the recent wintry weather. A first for the network, the resident Dr Bike session was held in a courtyard on a chilly day in February. Despite the cold, a total of 14 bicycles belonging to residents were safety checked, tuned and repaired and are now in a better state to tackle the busy cycle highways of London. The event took place over lunchtime and residents were treated to free food and drink from a local Tesco.
The feedback from participating residents was overwhelmingly positive and talks are in place to organise another session in the future. One of the residents is also booked onto a cycle maintenance course to learn how to fix his bike himself.
