Free monthly bike checks

We run a free monthly bike check service (COVID-19 restrictions dependent) for the Darebin community in Northcote and Reservoir. Our bike checks are co-funded by the Victorian Department of Transport.

To help you get ready for Ride2Work Day on 19 October, we're running special Big Bike Day events at our September 25 bike check in Reservoir and our October 15 bike check in Northcote. There'll be free coffee, free bike checks (bookings essential), free bike ID engraving, free personalised journey planning, a prize draw and more!

You can also register for Ride2Work Day using this link and you'll go into the draw to win a bike service from a local bike shop valued at $100.
