DR BIKE IN WATERLOO 
Wednesday 14 September

Bring your bike to Lambeth Council's team of professional
mechanics who will look it over for free and check tyres,
brakes, gears and its general roadworthiness. If your bike
has an issue that cannot be rectified in 15 minutes they
will advise you on what is wrong so you can take it to a
bike shop well-informed. The police will be at the events
marking bikes and adding details to BikeRegister.com. This
service will deter theft and in the event your bike is
stolen, will ensure that your details are on a nationwide
database so it is much more likely to be returned to you if
recovered. HGV awareness: friendly drivers and professional
cycle instructors will show you how to effectively road
share with big vehicles. You will have the opportunity to
come and sit in the cab of an HGV and see blind spots and
the view the drivers have for yourself.
