Bike Maintenance

We aim to have basic mechanical support at 2 locations along each day’s stage. We know it takes a lot to get to the start line and really want you to have the best chance of finishing.

At the end of each day, the race Camp has a full bike mechanic set up by Tune Cycles. There are bike washes located at Camp 2 and Camp 3.

In addition, there are also bike mechanics with storefronts in Derby (near Camp 1) and St Helens (Camp 3).

If you want to hand your bike over to someone else to look after once you cross the finish line, take a look at the bike service packages below that you can pre-order when you enter.

Bike Service Packs with Tune Cycles

Tune Cycles has joined the event as the official Maintenance Crew. Tune Cycles who specialise in mobile bike maintenance and repair services are bringing their mechanics & workshops to the Dragon Trail. The team will be set-up at each camp offering service, repair and wash services, also out on the course at key check points offering emergency support to keep you moving.

They’ll have all the essential parts on hand so Derby’s tacky granite or a cheeky tree root doesn’t ruin your weekend.  Tune Cycles have a range of early bird Service packs available so you can spend more time socialising at camp and less time worrying about tomorrow.  By pre-purchasing an early bird offer the team will make sure they’re carrying the right brake pads, derailleurs and suspension seal kits to keep your bike on the trail and you’ll save money!

Packages can be preordered when you enter or added into your entry at a later date by logging in here.

Parts not included in wash & tune, International travellers may require additional wash service (for customs clearance) prior to boxing, this is not included in standard pricing.
