Does your bike need a checkup?

On 4 August, tenants are invited to drop in for a free bike check-up with Dr Bike.

Dr Bike will be available between 10.30-12.30 to make small repairs and adjustments on the spot and make sure your ride is safe. Any bigger problems can be addressed at a later appointment, which you can make on the day.

Co-ordinated by Atelier Ten, this free service is offered by the Zero Emissions Network, a joint initiative between the boroughs of Hackney, Islington and Tower Hamlets. ZEN aims to help local businesses operate cleaner, greener and cheaper. To find out more, follow ZEN on Twitter!

Cycling is just one of many things we can do to protect the environment, and we’ve been working hard to improve our green credentials at PW this year. If you’d like to do more to beat the trash, check out our recycling tips here.

Remember: Those participating in the Dr Bike event at Perseverance Works do so entirely at their own risk.
