Five cycle hubs have opened this week within three communities in Hull.
Local cycling charity R-evolution has teamed up with Hull City Council to provide the new cycle hubs, offering:
Working with community partners, the cycle hub project aims to create a sustainable community cycle model and encourage people to choose active travel for commuting to work, for days out and as their first choice of local travel.
The hubs will work closely with each community to make sure bikes are repaired and safe to ride, and will aim to lend bikes to those who need them in order to join in with the project.
The volunteers will be trained at the charity’s Cottingham workshop as well as gaining onsite experience at the hub events each week, learning how to take over the project and develop ideas for the project and their community.
