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?

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 Level 2.

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.

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.

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.
