Cyclists are invited to Beechwood Arcade this Friday, 4 April to visit the Bike Hub, which has been organised by the Gloucestershire Bike Project.

The hub will be open from 10am to 3pm and it will offer cyclists the opportunity to have their bicycles checked for safety. Security tagging will also be available which will be provided by Gloucestershire Police. There will also be free cycle maps on offer that will mark out popular routes across the borough.

There will be opportunities to find out about volunteering at the Gloucestershire Bike Project, as well as information on bike mechanic courses for young people. The Bike Hub will also take anyone’s old or unused bikes so they can be reused by people who need bikes across the county.

There will even be a pedal-powered smoothie maker in the Hub for people to try out.  

The Bike Hub is supported by Gloucestershire County Council’s Local Sustainable Transport Fund scheme and is funded by the Department for Transport.
