'DR Bike' Cycle Maintenance Sessions
If your bike is looking a bit tired or you fancy getting back on your bike but you're not sure if it's up to scratch, a Dr Bike session may be for you!
As an employee you're entitled to FREE cycle maintenance sessions to help you get your bicycle back in working order.
As a participant, we will work
with your workplace to ensure
that we hold at least one
session a year to ensure
that your bike is ready
to use all year round.

cycle discounts & Vouchers
Cycle discounts and vouchers can be obtained from our key contact for your workplace.
Cycle discounts are available for 10% off cycle gear and even repairs. This may be used once only.
Cycle vouchers are available for up to £50 to spend on cycle accessories and repairs, and you don't have to spend it all in one go!
In order to receive a voucher or discount you must fill in a short survey so that we can identify if you are an employee, jobseeker, or an apprentice.
We will not take any personal information, such as your name or where you live. This is just for own data collection purposes.
Alternatively, if you prefer to download your voucher or discount, please fill in this form here.
We work with a variety of cycle hire businesses on the island to provide a long term cycle loan to employees.
If you need a helmet, a lock or any other accessories to keep you moving, we can also provide those to you as part of the loan.
There is no need for you to worry about the hassle of collecting the bike or returning it after you've finished with the bike, we'll deliver and collect island-wide!
You can choose from a variety of cycles such as hybrids or even e-bikes!

PedalAid is an app that allows you to raise money for local island charities as you ride.
Why not make a cycling team at work and see how many kilometers you can rack up!
Not only does your pedalling raise money for charity, it also gives you the chance to win a variety of prizes every month such as a FREE Rapanui tshirt, and a variety of discounts at local retailers such as Waterstones.
If you're new to cycling or it's been a while, getting a team together is a great way to build your confidence back up, or if you need a bit more of an incentive to ride, why not check out the app for yourself?
Why not link up with other teams and have a team ride?
The Cycle Hub provides secure storage facilities for FREE whilst you are at work.
Alongside the Red Jet terminal, you will find fully enclosed dual storage cycle parking with capacity for 74 bikes. It is covered by 24 hour CCTV and also has a universal repair stand fitted with a pump and tools.

team ride events
We've partnered up with AONB to deliver some guided cycling routes for you and your team to take part in.
These are done periodically throughout the year and will be displayed in our 'Events' section on the website.
Don't limit yourself to these events though, why not organise a team ride yourself?
If you're not as confident as you once were on your bike and you're thinking of giving it a go again, you might benefit from our cycle skills training.
We can do this at your workplace as a group, or we can even facilitate a 1-1 session if you'd prefer to go it alone.
You may bring your own bike or you are welcome to borrow one if needed.
The training will start off in a traffic free zone, and then eventually progress onto the roads.
If you're put off cycling by the roads, again this might be an option for you.
