Get involved as a volunteerHow Can You Help?

Watford Cycle Hub at this relatively early stage in its life, without external funding, depends heavily on support from volunteers. These committed individuals help with all manner of things from running bike maintenance courses, stripping down and rebuilding up donated bikes through to ‘front-of-house’ duties, cleaning and making coffee, all of which are equality important, but we could always do with more. Can you help?

We’ve been waiting for the official team photo but can’t wait any longer to share the news…… we won the Community Club of the Year Award last week.
Wonder who you can spot in the photo?



Kate was also 3rd in the Female Community Coach of the Year award and whilst John and Sam didn’t make the top three in their volunteer categories we think they and all our volunteers are very special.
We’d like to say a ‘big thank you’ to all the team, past and present, who have helped make Watford Cycle Hub what it is today and to our customers and supporters. We couldn’t do it without you so we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Before agreeing a date & time select the support level that suits you best:


Option A – Standard service.

Employees pay us direct for the services, parts & accessories they have.


Option B – Labour support.  

A step up from Dr Bike & Option A with the organisation paying for the labour element of our time on site. 

Costs are defined by the pre-determined time we spend on site & the number of mechanics assigned.  You decide.
