Mechanics for Hire

We can deliver bicycle maintenance classes and Dr Bike sessions at your workplace, school or event in Leeds. We are also able to offer fleet maintenance. All our mechanics are qualified to either City and Guilds Level 2 or EAL Level 2 (equivalent of Cytech). Our maintenance tutors are accredited by Cycling UK to deliver their Basic and Advanced courses.

We can send one mechanic on a bike with a trailer of kit  to set up a stall and carry out a check followed by basic repairs/ adjustments to the bikes of whoever turns up. We can also provide a sign up sheet in advance, if you would prefer to give people the option to book a slot with Dr Bike. If the bike requires more attention than what we can provide on the spot then we will recommend that the owner books it in for repair at our workshop or another bike shop in Leeds, or that they attend one of the drop-in repair workshops at Pedallers’ Arms and learn how to do it themselves.

The rates below are for requests within 3 miles of Leeds City Centre; if your location is further afield we might need to charge an additional fee for travel time.

Corporate/ public/ third sector: £60 for first hour, £30 for each thereafter, including basic consumables (cables, brake pads etc.). We can send a second mechanic for a further cost, enabling more bikes to be seen to within the time booked.

Community organisations: please contact us to discuss.

If you are interested in booking Leeds Bike Mill for a Dr Bike at your location please get in touch with your requirements.

Maintenance Classes

Learning bicycle mechanics together is a fantastic team building exercise. We can tailor our training to meet the needs of your group of colleagues, volunteers, or service users. Whether you want to get prepared for a group cycle, encourage day-to-day cycling or just get started on the basics, we can help.

One tutor can deliver a class for up to 6 participants. The minimum class length is 2 hours and this would cover the M-check, bike set up, adjusting brakes, adjusting gears, and replacing brake pads, with the opportunity to ask specific questions. A 2 hour class with 6 people would primarily be discussion and demonstration; for a more hands-on class the length would need to increase or the number of participants decrease.

We can send a mechanic on a bike with a trailer of kit to any location within 3 miles of Leeds City Centre for the rates below. If your location is further afield please contact us to discuss.

Corporate: £80 for first hour, £40 for each thereafter

Public/ third sector: £60 for first hour, £30 for each thereafter

Community organisations: please contact us to discuss.

Fleet Maintenance

We hold Cycling UK’s fleet maintenance qualification and can offer ongoing maintenance for bike fleets, for example your workplace’s pool bikes or your school’s bikes. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
