Who We are - What we do...

Watford Cycle Hub, a one stop shop for all things cycling – In the community, for the community 

 

We’re a not-for-profit community bike centre – not just a traditional bike shop. We’re in the Pavilion at the Holywell Community Centre just off the Ebury Way (see map)  Feel free to pop in to our workshop at the Hub to meet the team, we’ll be happy to show you around.

wch 046

We service and repair bikes, offer maintenance  and cycle training and offer advice on all matters cycling related . We accept your old bikes (the ones that have been cluttering up the back of your garden for years!) and recycle them, salvaging what we can and we also have a wide variety of fully reconditioned bikes for sale at great prices.

Visit our Shop to see our ever changing selection of reconditioned bikes!

 

We’re here to help you with advice and information about cycling and bikes, including local cycle routes and maps, news about locally led rides and cycling opportunities and advice on bike parts and maintenance.

Female cyclists are being inspired by the women’s tour and with the help of Breeze – the programme designed to get more women into riding bikes for fun.

Want your kids cycling safely on the road…..

What is Bikeability?

Bikeability is ‘cycling proficiency’ for the 21st century, designed to give the next generation the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads.

There are three Bikeability levels, with each level designed to help improve their cycling skills, no matter what they know already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take trainees on a journey from the basics of balance and control, all the way through to planning and making a journey by themselves on busier roads.

Children will typically start Bikeability lessons once they have learnt to ride a bike.
Level 1 will help new riders to control their bike before they move on to developing on-road skills at Level 2.
Level 2 is usually tackled by children in Years 5 or 6, before they leave primary school.

Level 3 teaches trainees how to ride in different and more challenging traffic situations, and is usually completed by children of secondary school age.
To register participants must have already successfully completed L2.

Kids will enjoy learning the skills and developing the confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads.

The courses start on the dates below, click on a course for more information and to book online.  

Hurry, places filling fast!

Billie Fleming Ride January 2nd 2015

Tribute to Billie

It was great to wake up to clear blue skies, sunshine and no frost for our Tribute to Billie Day 2 ride.  We gathered at the Watford Cycle Hub from 8:00 to fill up on coffee and bacon butties.

WP_000238

Following a photo call the main group of Sarah, Ian, Cath, Richard, Lesley, Jacqui, Nick, Kate and Veronica set off towards Rickmansworth.  Their route then took them to Denham and out into the Chiltens towards Wendover.

Who came partly by train?

The shorter group consisting of Fiona, Debbie, Mags, Marc  and Robert caught the train to Tring then cycled to Aldbury and enjoyed refreshments in a pub whilst waiting for the main ride. However, after some changes to the route and plan we rode through Wiggington to meet up under the clock tower in Chesham and the 9 of us remaining cycled the final 20 miles or so as a whole group back to the Hub for a well-deserved cuppa and some fantastic homemade stolen, courtesy of Debbie!

A total of 14 riders made the event

The group varied during the day with people joining and leaving at different points but in total 14 people took part in some part of the ride and the distance travelled by the lead cyclist was 60.1 miles.

 

Back at WCH

 

Group in order is Nick, Ian, Fiona, Mags, Cath, Sarah, Kate & Jacqui

With support from Watford Borough Council, we are able to offer bike security marking to complete your registration process with BikeRegister, an independently tested and police approved National Cycle Database.

BikeRegister is the UK’s leading online bicycle identification and registration initiative, aiming to reduce cycle theft, identify stolen bikes and assist in owner recovery.  By registering and marking your bike, the chances of having it stolen are greatly reduced.

Kate was also 3rd in the Female Community Coach of the Year award and whilst John and Sam didn’t make the top three in their volunteer categories we think they and all our volunteers are very special.
