Free bicycle check in Born (Sittard-Geleen) and at Brusselsepoort shopping centre in Maastricht

If your bicycle needs a minor repair, then don't leave it in storage! Visit Born on Saturday 21 November or go to Brusselsepoort shopping centre in Maastricht on Saturday 28 November to have the mobile bicycle mechanic look at your bicycle. The mobile bicycle mechanic will perform minor repairs free of charge to you, because Zuid-Limburg Bereikbaar will pay for the expenses. 

Good bicycle, good exercise

Now more than ever, it is important for us to exercise. That is why we are prioritizing bicycles. Bicycle mechanic Verhulst will soon go to two locations in South Limburg to perform minor repairs on bicycles:

  • On Saturday 21 November between 9:30 AM and 12:30 PM on markt square at Kerkstraat in Born (municipality of Sittard-Geleen).
  • On Saturday 28 November between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM at Brusselsepoort shopping centre. The mobile bicycle mechanic will be stationed across from Pets Place. 

What sort of repairs will the mobile bicycle mechanic do?

The bicycle mechanic will perform minor repairs such as tightening loose screws, adjusting brakes, putting a chain back on, or repairing a punctured tyre. If you need to replace a bicycle tyre, then please note that the bicycle mechanic does not have any spares. If you bring a replacement bicycle tyre with you, then the bicycle mechanic will be happy to replace your tyre for you.

Remain socially distanced and wait for your turn

As part of this campaign, we have implemented measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Maintain 1.5 metres distance from others, even when you are waiting for your turn.
