Dr Bike’s first 2020 visit to Medway is coming up on Thursday 23 January. He will be outside the Student Hub between 12.30 and 15.30.
Dr Bike is a trained bicycle mechanic, who offers free cycle health checks including adjustments and advice on repairs. Major repair work and parts are available and will always be charged at a reduced rate for staff and students. The service is available to all University of Kent and University of Greenwich staff and students.
The University of Greenwich have also organised for Medway police to come and perform bike marking between 12.30 and 13.30. Marking consists of taking the frame number from your bicycle, then marking your bicycle with a unique reference number using a chemical compound and applying a semi-temperproof sticker. All of the reference numbers are then logged on to a secure database, run by BikeRegister.
Registering your bike helps the police identify the legitimate owners of bicycles that have been stolen.
The police will also be able to offer bicycle security and safety advice.
You do not need to register for the event, which is free to all. Just bring your bicycle to the Student Hub on Pembroke campus.
