Doctor Bike is a classic travelling medicine event. However the difference is the focus on bikes.


Bikes Revived travells to different locations in Surrey and sets up for 2-3 hrs (demand dependent) - fixes bikes.


  • If your bike needs a tune up look at the shedule below and come and see us.


  • Flat tyres

    - Pump them up to their recommended pressure. Most bikes haven't had their tyres that hard since they were bought. Owners will be amazed at how fast, easy and un-mushy their bikes feel, and will grin like children in a sweetshop.

  • Badly set up brakes

    - Brake blocks missing the rim or hitting the tyre or toed-out and screeching or loose or missing. You know what to do.
  • Dry chains

    - Lube is an alien idea to Joe Punter. A can of 3-in-1 does the trick. All of a sudden, rough gears shift nicely again. A miracle cure!
  • Gears out of alignment

    - A little WD40 in the parallelogram pivots and some cable tension adjustment, and some total disasters can be made to run sweetly again. In some cases, though, the transmission is so worn that it'll never shift right: don't waste time trying to adjust these, send 'em to the shop.
  • Wheels out of true

    - So apply spoke key. Remember, you can get a wheel true enough in a couple of minutes, its that perfect raceday true that takes ages. You don't need that here.
  • Wobbly loose bits

    - A generous salad of Allen keys, spanners and screwdrivers sorts this lot out. When the rattles are gone, smiley people emerge.
  • General corrosion and perishing

    - Cables rusted into their outers are a shop job if a squirt of WD40 and some wiggling can't free them; perished tyres are likewise. If a tyre is particularly iffy, don't inflate it to full pressure.





Inaccurate history of Dr. Bike

Dr. Bike started off back in the mists of time, probably in one of the big metropliian cities with a H3 bike culture.


When bike shop mechanics realised that many riders were in many cases riding utter sheds, often skip-salvaged and dangerous. These mechanics would take along a toolkit and offer to check over the bikes which were present, to make sure that they were safe.


The theme took root, and now Dr. Bike can be seen at many venues especially large green events or mass bike rides.

That's probably the history. The good Doctor's true origins are shrouded in mystery.
