An Aberdeen charity has become the first in the city to sign up to the Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme.

Adventure Aberdeen, part of Sport Aberdeen, will now offer free bike repairs and maintenance to anyone in the city who cannot access its paid services.

The scheme, funded by the Scottish Government and delivered through Cycling UK, aims to remove financial barriers to cycling, encouraging healthier and greener travel.

Adventure Aberdeen is offering repairs and maintenance up to the value of £50 per person on all adult and children’s bikes, e-bikes and other forms of cycle from its site in Kingswells.

Graeme Dale, Sport Aberdeen’s head of sport and active communities said: “Giving everyone in Aberdeen access to cycle maintenance is an extremely positive step towards seeing more people, of all ages and abilities, take part in physical activity and I hope that our new offering, and the scheme, will be widely used.

“Whether you are a budding cyclist, just starting out or have rediscovered a love for the sport during the lockdown, it is our hope that by enabling, and encouraging, more people to participate in safe cycling we can play our part in creating a healthier and greener Aberdeen.”

Details of how to book your place and a full list of services, with prices, can be found on the Sport Aberdeen website.
