Who is BikeDr?
Passionate about bikes and the people who ride them, BikeDr. is Perth’s most convenient and professional bike servicing provider.
For almost a decade, BikeDr. has been Perth’s most trusted cycle servicing provider – whether its mobile servicing across Perth’s EOT facilities or as the support provider of choice for some of WA’s biggest cycling events, BikeDr. has built its reputation on unparalleled quality and customer service.
But that’s not the only thing that makes BikeDr. stand out from the crowd – as a subsidiary of Dismantle, BikeDr. operates as a social enterprise, meaning that every dollar spent in-store goes towards supporting WA’s young people doing it tough. As well as helping to fund Dismantle’s core business, BikeDr. also offers around 10 paid work-placements each year for young people needing some help to get into the workforce.
