Cycling is a great way to get to and from work, and the benefits to productivity have been clearly documented. There are many ways that companies can support the health and wellbeing of their employees, and providing a mechanic on site to provide basic servicing during the working day is a great option. 

Bikeworks have been providing on-site mobile maintenance services to companies in London, and beyond, for over a decade. We work with fully qualified mechanics who have significant experience working on a full range of bikes, including working outside of a traditional workshop. 

How they work

Sessions are bespoke and can be tailored to the needs and requirements of the company. However, we have generally found that sessions of 2-4 hours with one or two mechanics, starting at the beginning of the day when people are arriving, work best. 

Mechanics arrive and set up. The area used can be inside or outside, although some shelter makes for happier mechanics! The space will need to be semi-contained to keep the bikes safe and allow the mechanic to control the space, ie. in the corner of a courtyard, or some other space with a barrier of some sort along at least one side. 

The mechanics will perform basic check overs of your employee bikes for free, usually spending up to 15-20 mins on one bike. If there is something which needs repairing or replacing on the bike, or more servicing is required beyond what the mechanic is able to do on site in the time provided. 

Depending on the service you wish to provide, your company has the option to fund additional service items, such as paying to provide basic parts (brake pads and cables) to be replaced on the bikes and/or bike security marking.
