Watford Cycle Hub
Watford Cycle Hub is a non-profit community bike centre supported by Watford Community Housing Trust. The Watford Cycle Hub provides a range of bike related support. They offer bike repair services, maintenance courses and cycle training. They also accept your old rusty bikes (the ones that have been cluttering up the back of your garden for years!) and recycle them, salvaging what they can. In turn they also sell affordable reconditioned bikes and bike parts.
The business aims to create a ‘One-Stop-Shop’ that will promote cycling as an enjoyable, safe and healthy form of transport, which is also good for the environment.
Watford Cycle Hub also aims to overcome some of the economic and cultural barriers to cycling, and create employment opportunities by offering practical work experience to local people who are interested in becoming cycle mechanics.
