Cycle Skills Training
From September we will be able to offer family bubble rides. These will be designed to improve cycling confidence and knowledge of routes in your local area. All rides will adhere to social distancing procedures. In order to facilitate this, we are currently only able to offer these to people who have access to a working bike and are able to ride it unassisted. If you’d like to enquire about a ride please contact us
A buddy commute is a one to one support session for anyone thinking of cycling to work. This includes a bespoke cycle route from your door to your workplace accompanied by a member of Hub staff able to offer support and advice. Each session is tailored to the individual, the level of support will depend on your needs.
Sessions will always include a led ride of your commute route, however they can also include cycle training
to make sure you are confident and ready to cycle to work. Buddy commutes are designed to boost confidence, you must be able to cycle. We also ask that you have access to a bike, we cannot provide bikes for these sessions. To find out more or book a session email firstname.lastname@example.org

What others have said about our sessions
“I came to the hub because I wanted to regain confidence after coming off my bike last summer.
The hub was great and offered me a 1:1 session with one of their friendly cycle trainers.
During the two hour session I felt I could first of all openly talk about what scares me and secondly tackle some of the fears straight away.
I really appreciated the relaxed and equally professional atmosphere of the session. I feel I really benefited even from just one session and think loads of people could pick up some skills and knowledge through these sessions.”
