Join us as we aim to cycle 423 miles… the same distance as the Rickshaw Challenge!!
Starting from Watford Cycle Hub, cycle as many 1 mile (traffic free) loops as you can to help make up the total distance. Each loop will be counted and the miles plotted against the Rickshaw Challenge route.
£1 to enter. Wear yellow or spots and maybe even decorate your bike!!
We are delighted to announce we were awarded The Mayor’s Sporting Achievement Group Award on Friday evening at the Audentior Awards! ????
Thank you Watford, our customers and all those we already support. Please help us spread the word as we’re still being told we’re a well kept secret and we’d love to make a difference to more people’s lives.
As a group award, this congratulates and recognises our whole team; staff, volunteers and supporters who give so much time, energy & passion – to provide the range of services that are making a difference in our community.
Thanks to Ian Port and Steve Martin for the short film of our August Go Ride event. It was shown at the Audentior Awards, hope you enjoy the film.
Today, 25 Jan 2017, sees one of our stalwarts celebrate a milestone birthday (he’s 80!). Dennis Fitton is one of our ride leaders, a workshop volunteer and keen promoter and supporter of all things Watford Cycle Hub related.
Mad keen on all things cycling, he has been a Spokes member for some 20 years, regularly leading rides, is a National Cycle Group leader for the U3A and is a qualified Ride Leader and Route Planner and an active participant in our Ride Social Programme.
Having been a passionate cyclist for most of his life Dennis asked if he could pop in regularly to do some volunteering … “fettling” with (helping to recondition) bikes in return for being around the chaps to learn more about ‘modern’ bikes!
Of course his talents don’t just stop there; after his last excursion into the Cycle Hub, an annoying catch on the door now closes with ease!
80 years young! Congrats & hats off you Dennis! Many Happy Returns!
Great to see Kate collecting Herts Service to Sports Community Club of the Year Award on behalf of Watford Cycle Club. 2 years of hard work recognised so thanks to all the team, past and present, and all our supporters.
We’ve been waiting for the official team photo but can’t wait any longer to share the news…… we won the Community Club of the Year Award last week.
Wonder who you can spot in the photo?
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.
We’d like to say a ‘big thank you’ to all the team, past and present, who have helped make Watford Cycle Hub what it is today and to our customers and supporters. We couldn’t do it without you so we look forward to seeing you again soon.
