A local charity has become the first in Aberdeen to sign up to the Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme.
Now Adventure Aberdeen, which is part of charity Sport Aberdeen, has secured funding through the scheme to launch free repair services for city cyclists.
Repair and maintenance work will take place at Adventure Aberdeen, in Kingswells, with more details at www.sportaberdeen.co.uk/ adventure-aberdeen-bike-workshop

Graeme Dale, Sport Aberdeen head of sport and active communities said: “Giving everyone in Aberdeen access to cycle maintenance is an extremely positive step towards seeing more people, of all ages and abilities, take part in physical activity and I hope that our new offering, and the scheme, will be widely used.
“Whether you are a budding cyclist, just starting out or have rediscovered a love for the sport during the lockdown, it is our hope that by enabling, and encouraging, more people to participate in safe cycling we can play our part in creating a healthier and greener Aberdeen.”
Mrs MacDonald, who is also an Aberdeen councillor, last night added: “I’m delighted to hear that cyclists, new or experienced, will now be able to take part in the scheme.
“Sport Aberdeen is to commended and I hope their lead encourages others with the capacity to do so, to take part too.”
