Get a free bike tuneup at City Hall or Lansdowne Park this month

By Greggory Clark on May 15, 2018


If you haven’t already, take your bike for a quick and free tune-up courtesy of Right Bike mechanics and thanks to support from the municipal Safer Roads Ottawa program. A pro mechanic will have a look at your brakes, gear shifters, wheels, tires, and make the adjustments your bike needs to be ride-ready.

The free bike maintenance pod is out front City Hall daily from Monday to Friday between 3pm and 7pm, from May 1–19. Then the pod moves over to Lansdowne Park, located between Aberdeen Pavilion and the canal from 3pm to 7pm weekdays between May 21–28.

These are fast free repairs, so if you think your bike needs replacement parks and something more than a spring tune-up, it might be time to pay for repairs at your friendly neighbourhood shop:


  • Foster’s (305 Bank)
  • Retro Rides (65 Sparks)
  • Tall Tree Cycles (806 Somerset W)

The Glebe

  • Joe Mamma Cycles (767 Bank)
  • Kunstadt Sports (680 Bank)
  • McCrank’s (889 Bank)

  • Cyco’s (5 Hawthorne)
