Help­ing keep bikes on road

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

CY­CLISTS were given a help­ing hand when an ex­pert car­ried out free main­te­nance work on their bikes.

Mike Wood (above), of the Bike Sta­tion, was in the city cen­tre fix­ing and ser­vic­ing bikes free of charge.

The ser­vice is funded by Dundee City Coun­cil to en­cour­age green com­mut­ing.

The Bike Sta­tion is a reg­is­tered char­ity which also re­cy­cles do­nated bikes, sells them at af­ford­able prices and then uses the pro­ceeds to help peo­ple across Scot­land get in the sad­dle.

Based in Perth and Ed­in­burgh, pop-up events are held in Dundee reg­u­larly. The char­ity is in the process of set­ting up a per­ma­nent Bike Sta­tion in the city.

The next pop-up will be in the city cen­tre on Wed­nes­day.
