MONTY'S BIKE HUB is our exciting new social enterprise, looking to develop our various cycling activities here at Monty's Community Hub. Working with local volunteers and partnering with several other groups and charities, Monty's Bike Hub will be developing a range of cycling-related groups, sessions and activities over the coming months...


         Wednesday / 6-8pm / BIKE WORKSHOP [FREE]

         * come to mend or maintain your own bike, supervised by experienced bike mechanics

         * if you don't know how to mend your bike, we can help you learn to do it yourself

         * we have all the tools you need for basic bike maintenance

         * we'll lend you a complete tool set and stand when you bring you bike along

         * workshop use is free, but there's a small charge for parts (tubes, cables, pads, etc)


         Thursday / 3:30-5:30pm / FAMILY CYCLE SKILLS - contact us to book a lesson

         * activities to help build cycling confidence - eg ‘Bikagility’ and ‘Ditch the Stabilisers’

         * if you are interested in building your confidence, get in touch to arrange a lesson


         Thursday / 5-7pm / YOUTH BIKE WORKSHOP [FREE]

         * if you're in Yr7+ bring your bike to fix with supervision by our bike mechanic

         * workshop use is free, but there's a small charge for parts (tubes, cables, pads, etc)


MONTY'S BIKE HUB: Bicycle Repair Service

We regularly run 'Bike Doctor' sessions at Monty’s, which is the best place to get your bike checked over and fixed up for free. However, if you can't join us at any of our sessions, or if can't mend your bike yourself in our workshop, please contact Josh Allen on 07411.517.900 or drop your bike round during our opening hours and our bike team can have a look at it for you. (We are currently working out a pricing structure for Bike Servicing, so it will all be quite flexible as we develop the service.)


MONTY'S BIKE HUB: Bicycle Recycling

We now collect unwanted secondhand bikes, which we then recycle, repair and retail at reasonable prices to the local community. All profits are used to support Monty's - so if you have an unused or unwanted bike sat in your shed, please call Josh Allen on 07411.517.900 and he will arrange collection. Please also get in touch if you are interested in buying a good value second hand bike.



DO YOU WANT TO GET INVOLVED? We're always on the lookout for volunteers or people with ideas or skills to share with our community - get in touch if you'd like to chat about what we could do together. As we grow, we are also hoping to employ local bike mechanics to repair and recycle secondhand bikes for resale. Check our Facebook page for updates, or get in touch (via Facebook or our contact page) to find out more about how you can join in...

MONTY'S BIKE HUB is only possible thanks to our wonderful volunteers and our generous partners, whose support is gratefully acknowledged:
