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?

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 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.
Hurry, places filling fast!
