If you're taking your own bike with you on a cycling holiday it's worth getting it serviced at least 2 weeks before you leave (some bike shops have 2 week+ waiting lists for servicing during busy periods so book your service at least a month beforehand). Getting hold of replacement parts in foreign countries can be awkward so it's well worth considering. Tour guides are often able to carry out basic repairs, but there is only so much they can do.
Member Offer - 15% Off Bike Servicing!
All good bike shops will be able to service your bike for you.
However, we have teamed up with Fluid Cycles Ltd to offer you and your friends, family and colleagues a great 'on-site servicing' deal. Fluid Cycles provide a bike maintenance service with a difference - they come to you! (Zone 1 and Canary Wharf in London only) Fluid Cycles' experienced and professional staff will visit your office or home and carry out the work on-site, saving you the inconvenience of taking your bike to a shop.
Fluid Cycles will discount their labour costs by 15% when 3 or more members of TheCyclePeople.com have their bike serviced (Full or Basic Service) at the same location. That's a saving of nearly £10 each if all three bikes have a Full Service.
To qualify for the offer at least one person has to be a Premium Membership holder. To become a Premium Membership holder sign up for FREE membership to TheCyclePeople.com and then refer the two other people having their bike serviced to us (ensure they enter your membership no. as the Referrer ID when they sign up). Your membership will then be automatically upgraded - it's that simple.
The offer code for this deal is located in the Premium Membership section which can be accessed via the Members' Area page - ensure you quote this code when contacting Fluid Cycles to arrange the service.
Fluid Cycles Ltd - Services & Price List
Full Service: £65
For this we will check over the whole bike from nose to tail and replace any parts as needed. Ideal if you put in lots of miles on your bike, or if the bike has not been looked at for a long time.
Basic Service: £40
This is good basic check for your bike if it has not been used for a while or if it is already in good shape and you wish to keep it that way.
All prices are for Labour Only - parts will be charged on top of this.
If you would prefer not to take advantage of the 15% Off Bike Servicing Offer, then you can still contact Fluid Cycles regarding all other bike servicing and maintenance needs at the following address: http://www.fluidcycles.co.uk/booking.htm
