TWO local businesses are offering free cycle repair and maintenance.

Bike Bothy, Forres and Bikespokes mobile service, Kinloss are taking part in the Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme offering repairs of up to £50 per person, funded by the Scottish Government and administered by Cycling UK.

The 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 have an old bike in the shed that needs attention or the one you use requires some care, you can access a quality mechanic to get your bike repaired, safe and back in use.

Just contact a participating shop or mechanic to get a repair booked in.

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