Fancy learning how to fix your own bike? HYPE’s ‘Dr Bike’ scheme could help you!

Don’t worry if you don’t have your own bike- we have bikes for you to borrow! But please let us know in advance…

‘Dr Bike’ currently running:

  • Courtney Road Youth Clubs- Mondays and Fridays 5-7pm
  • Available at ‘Soup & Cycle’- Fridays 12-2pm week commencing 3rd November

HYPE’s ‘Dr Bike’ is growing… 2018 will mark the beginning of bespoke ‘Dr Bike’ sessions in schools across Wirral . If you’re interested, please get in touch.

HYPE’s ‘Soup & Cycle’ community bike shop opening 3rd November!

‘Soup & Cycle’ will be running each Friday afternoon from 12-2pm in ‘The Little T Room’ on Grange Road West, Birkenhead. 

HYPE’s Cycling Coordinator and trainee mechanic will be providing bike services and basic fixes to those of you with broken cycles. Hot soup will be served for those who attend. HYPE hopes to establish a community cycling group that will join us for group rides on a Friday afternoon.

‘Soup & Cycle’ will be a free drop-in,  all we ask is for some constructive feedback on our services and how to improve!

There’s already been a lot of interest so please drop by when you can!

HYPE are partnering with Cycling UK to get Merseyside on the move!

There are a lot of exciting things in the works for us. HYPE are planning to bring accessible BMX bike pumps and ‘Dr Bike’ sessions to young people across Merseyside. HYPE are currently working with several Wirral-based schools to help develop cycling provisions and get our young people riding confidently!
