Bike Hub

We have always been passionate about the potential biking has to make life better for people. Today we are currently working with hundreds of people and many diverse communities who share our passion and want to create a cycling culture.

Within Merseyside, we are part of a growing social movement. Our Bike expansion plans encapsulate a desire to be the facilitators of services, which enhance the lives of cyclists and would-be cyclists across the Liverpool City Region.

HUB will be making cycling cheaper, safer, more accessible, and a natural choice for as many people as possible.

HUB AIMS

To provide positive opportunities for socially excluded people to improve their skills and achieve their employment goals:

  1. To promote volunteering across our HUB’s
  2. To provide training & education for cyclists & mechanics
  3. To promote cycling using pump tracks, conservation, heritage and art
  4. To enhance our regions cycle routes
  5. To reuse bicycles and divert bicycle ‘waste’ from the waste stream in Merseyside

Benefits of the Bike Hub

  • Cycle maintenance clinics
  • Bike Safety for young people and adults
  • Confidence in cycling on the road
  • Awareness of cycle routes and traffic free routes

The Bike Hub aims to promote both social and recreational riding to the community. We aim to be inclusive of everyone from beginner to expert and for those who may cycle to the shop or school and those who want to be challenged.

Our engaging bike trips across North Wales bring together many young people from different communities, all have the same passion on the day for biking and work together to get the most from their trips. When asked 80% of the young people said bike leader or bike mechanic were jobs they would want to be when they were older.
