The Big Bike (Hub) Revival

 

Brighton BikeHub Re-Opens

Brighton BikeHub started life a couple of years back at the former municipal market on Circus Street, and with the support of the Groundwork Charity who had been given temporary use of some of the space prior to demolition and redevelopment. It offered a free to use community workshop and self help repair sessions as well as repairing donated bikes for sale.

Times move on – Circus Street is now demolished, Groundwork has opened its own shop on Lewes Road and the team of volunteers behind the original Circus Street workshop have opened up a second space at The Field (formerly Preston Barracks – next to B&Q on Lewes Road). With workshop space formed of a cluster of shipping containers, provided by u+i the developers of the site, Brighton BikeHub joins a collection of creative makers and start-ups who have found a home at The Field, which also includes The Old Tree Brewery Garden Cafe offering on site sustenance.

The Big Bike Revival

The Big Bike Revival is a series of events across the country, put together by Cycling UK and is aimed at getting bikes back on the road and riders back on their bikes, and Brighton BikeHub is taking part as a local centre, where you can get help to spruce and fettle your machine ready for a summer of cycling

BikeHub will be open each Friday and Saturday from 11-4 and will be providing a self-help community workshop where you can repair your own bike, and is looking for volunteers to help refurbish donated bikes for re-use.
