Mobile bike servicing and repairs
Norfolk Cycles operates a COVID safe environment. We will continue to ask all customers to keep their distance and to wear a face covering at all times.
Don’t forget if you have any old inner tubes or tyres you need to dispose of in an environmentally way you can always bring them along to one of our pop up events.
Norfolk Cycles has just signed an agreement with Velorim to join their tyre and inner tube recycling scheme. There will be a small charge in line with the scheme recommendations of 50 pence per tyre and 20 pence per inner tube. The fee simply covers the collection costs, there is no profit to us. We will be happy to collect tyres and tubes when we are holding our pop up sessions.
Our Dr Bike Pop Up sessions start again in June, at these sessions we offer FREE Safety Checks and FREE Minor Repairs.
19 June Runton Road Car Park, Cromer from 08:30 until 12:30
26 June at Sheringham Market from 08:30 until 12:30
10 July Stalham High Street Car Park 08:30 until 12:30
31 July The Diplomat Pub, Badersfield 08:30 until 12:30
4 September Vicarage Street Car Park North Walsham 08:30 until 12:30
18 September Aylsham Market Place 08:30 until 12:30.
These sessions are limited to one cycle per person and is allocated 30 minutes to be checked and for any repairs necessary to make it safe. This is not a service and if bigger problems are highlighted we will tell you exactly what the problem is.
We are also holding Dr Bike Pop Ups in two of our local schools this term, North Walsham High School on 1 July and North Walsham Junior School on 8 July. They are only open to students and staff of those schools and we will be there from 08:00 until school closes.
Our new project this summer is to offer FREE Maintenance Workshops where we will show you how to look for and identify problems, how to remove a wheel and change an inner tube for both front and back wheels and more. Each session will run for one hour and will be limited to 3 participants at a time. We will run 5 sessions per venue. Booking will be essential and you will need a bicycle with you. Our sessions at each venue will start at 09:15, 10:30, 11:45, 13:30 and 14:45.
Cycle Maintenance Workshops will be at the following:
24 July Hoveton Village Hall

About Norfolk Cycles
If you’ve been putting off having your bike serviced because of the hassle of taking it to a shop, or the concern that it’s too expensive, then look no further than Norfolk Cycles.
My name is Lance Cornwell, cycle engineer and owner of Norfolk Cycles – mobile cycle repair service. My workshop is based in North Walsham, but I’ll travel across the county to your home or workplace.
Most jobs can be done with the tools and spares I carry with me. If the job is a major rebuild (gold service), I will bring your bike back to my workshop and return it to you.
To book a service or repair, please contact me.
I have been servicing and repairing all types of bikes, both in competition and recreational roles, since the early 1990s
Having an engineering background enables me to diagnose issues you may have quickly and often foresee a problem before it arises
I have worked with people all my working life, and I’m also an enthusiastic rider, so my commitment to your satisfaction is always personable and friendly
Areas covered in Norfolk
My service area covers a 20 mile radius from my base in North Walsham. Areas outside of this will incur an additional charge.

“Had a silver service from lance yesterday I would highly recommend using him and will be using him again myself. it looks and feels like a new bike”
Customer in Hickling
“Lance gave my bike a gold service, and it feels new again! I’ve had my road bike for many years, and I neglected it for many years while using it to commute in London. Now that I’m living in Norfolk I wanted to enjoy it as a hobby again but I feared my bike was too far past being repairable. Lance kept in touch during the rebuild and provided a comprehensive breakdown of the new parts that were needed. The ease of having my bike collected and delivered, plus the friendly professional service, means I would recommend Lance to everyone I know!”
Customer in Blofield
“Lance came to my house to fit new brakes, using their mobile workshop. My bike is over 20 years old but not been well used. It just had the old style of brakes and they had ceased to work. Lance fitted new ones and they are the best they have ever been. Lance knows his stuff, and his knowledge and passion for bikes shines through. The price was reasonable too. I highly recommend this company.”
Customer in Bacton
It’s important to keep your bike serviced, not only for safety reasons, but to keep your biking experience enjoyable!
Regular services can also prevent costly repairs later down the line.
