Free Bike Doctor sessions for all essential and key workers

In June 2020 Gosport Community Safety Partnership funded four weekly bike doctor sessions at Bicycle Recycling free of charge for all essential and key workers in Gosport.  The sessions were a huge success!

In total 44 bikes were serviced, 17 discounted locks were sold and 34 bikes were security coded.

Thank you to all the essential and key workers who attended these sessions.

A guide to keeping your bicycle safe

  • Don’t leave your bicycle unlocked – even for a minute!
  • If you have a garage or shed, secure your bicycle in it using a lock and then lock the garage/shed.
  • Lock the frame to something solid and use a sold secure lock. Visit
  • Note your bicycle make, model and frame number somewhere safe.

It is recommended that cyclists use two locks of different types, and lock the frame and both wheels to the stand. This will defend the secured bicycle against multiple theft techniques. Please see the diagram below.
