Havering hosts cycle hubs once again this year
Havering Bikewise hubs are taking place across the borough this summer

Four Bikewise hubs will open from Monday 23 July and will run until the end of August.

The programme offers training for all ages and abilities – from learning to ride sessions for children to looking at how you can maintain your bike, with a number of workshops. Each hub will have some bikes that can be used for training, including both adult and children’s bikes.

The hubs will take place at the following venues:

  • Myplace, Dagnam Park Drive, Romford, RM3 9EN
  • Rainham Village Primary School, Upminster Road South, Rainham, RM13 9AA
  • Ingrebourne Valley (Essex Wildlife Trust Valley Visitor Centre), Hornchurch Country Park, Squadron’s Approach, Hornchurch RM12 6DF
  • Thames Chase Forest Trust, Pike Lane, Upminster, RM14 3NS

Councillor Osman Dervish, Cabinet Member for Environment, said:
“I’m delighted that we are once again working with Cycle Confident to bring this programme to the four cycle hubs across the borough so that residents can learn cycle safety and bike repair skills.

“Not only is cycling a great opportunity to get fit, it is fun for all ages and a sport people can enjoy on their own or with family and friends.”

To book places at any of the hubs you can call Cycle Confident on 0203 031 6730 or email contact@cycleconfident.com.
