Watford Cycle Hub, a one stop shop for all things cycling – In the community, for the community
Spring into Action with Watford Cycle Hub
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.
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.
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.

How 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?
