Big Bike Revival comes to Watford


The Big Bike Revival is a National Campaign between CTC, the National Cycling Charity and the Department for Transport. It aims to get more people on bikes for short local journeys; teach them how to carry out basic repairs; cycle safely, either on the road or via local cycle routes; find out more about local clubs or activities  or recycle an old bike.

Watford Cycle Hub is the local organiser and you can find out more   HERE

AVIVA Community Fund

Aviva Community Fund

We want to get our Mobile Mechanic Service out into the community more across Watford and in order to recruit a dedicated team we need support funding.  We have been short listed for funding from the Aviva Community Fund but the final results depend upon the number of votes  each project receives.

We need you to follow the link below, register on the site and then cast your vote in support of the Watford Cycle Hub project.


The Van Goes Abroad

We are off!

As word spreads about our fully equipped mobile workshop, demand is increasing. We have been very fortunate in being asked to provide mechanical support to a ride from London to Paris in 24 hours.


Organised by Sophie Radcliffe, founder of Challenge Sophie, who has teamed up with Cycle Hub regular Jonathon Friend, who runs a Cycle Tour company Cycle Friendly, this promises to bea demanding yet satisfying event starting from the Greenwich Observatory at 4pm ( 3 pm GMT)on 2 May and, via an overnight Newhaven to Dieppe ferry crossing finishing at 5pm local time  (3pm GMT) underneath the Eiffel Tower.  Matt and Ian will be manning the van, getting lost in France, providing mechanical support to the riders and attempting to keep the Hub’s facebook page updated!

If you are interested in taking part then please go to to find out more and to book a place.

Get Involved And Volunteer

volunteer_03How Can You Help?

Watford Cycle Hub at this relatively early stage in its life, without external funding, depends heavily on support from volunteers. These committed individuals help with all manner of things from running bike maintenance courses, stripping down and rebuilding up donated bikes through to ‘front-of-house’ duties, cleaning and making coffee, all of which are equality important, but we could always do with more. Can you help?
