Get ready for Bike to Work Week (BtWW) with a free tune up at Richmond Hospital.

Free bike tune ups at Richmond Hospital

Everyone wants to ride a well-maintained bike to work, right? To do so — and in celebration of Bike to Work Week (BtWW), May 29 to June 4 — VCH is bringing a bike mechanic to Richmond Hospital on Thursday, May 25 to perform basic tune ups.

All work will done while you work! There will be space for 10 free bike tune-ups during the workday.

  • Instructions for where to leave your bike will be sent to respondents a week in advance.
  • To qualify for a tune up, your bike must be in working order and capable of safely being ridden.
  • If you wish to have brakes or inner tubes replaced, be sure to pick up the correct size(s) at a bike shop and leave them with your bike for the mechanic to install free-of-charge.

Sign up for a tune up

Sign up for your tune up using this link: sign me up! Also, don’t forget to register for BtWW (May 29-June 4) as there are prizes awarded each day of the week. VCH cyclists who lead a team of at least five riders will win a 100 per cent merino wool shirt for their effort.

If you have any questions about BtWW, please contact Arthur Orsini, Active Transportation Lead, VCH.
