The cycle hub is based in free space provided by the Royal Hotel - in the side rooms which open directly onto the corner of Wood Street and Market Place, Kettering.
The hub is opened from 10am till 4pm once a month - every last Saturday of the month - and is manned by volunteers and managed by Brightwayz social enterprise. Winter hours are 11am to 3pm.
Services provided include free indoor, manned cycle parking, free cycle maps, free cycle security marking, information on current active travel engagement eg Kettering Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) and occasional free cycle service (when funding is avilable).
When we are open we also gratefully accept pre-loved bike (and bike bits) donations. These are then serviced and if necessary repaired before being used for our community projects for those in need.
The most important aspect of the hub is it attracts locals who want to talk about thier active travel needs - eg those with questions about cycling in the area, concerns about cycle security, or who need information about cycling training or want to know about social rides for mobility scooters and more.
If you are in the area, please pop in and see us. It's a very basic set up but has a lot of heart in it as we are all volunteers with a passion for making active travel better in our local town for everyone.
