Hi there,

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Drop by at the following times for bike hire, to use our workshop tools, or ask about cycle training or travel advice.

Email us directly to make appointments for specific times or ask us questions during the times we are closed. We hope to resolve this issue very very swiftly and will update the site as soon as our solution is in place.

Summer break

The University Bike Hub will be closed for Bike Hire and workshop access from Monday 27th July and re-open on Thursday 10th September. Our hard-working fleet of bikes will be rearing to go in the new term when the students arrive back! 🙂

PLEASE NOTE: this won’t affect Cycle Re-cycle at the College Hub – they are open as usual (times here) for sales, service and repairs.

Summer is but a fading memory now, please pop into the hub for our full range of lights, lamps, reflectors and winter kit

Punctures, brakes, gears

Like anything mechanical, bikes can break or wear out, and this can be a worry. Thankfully, many problems can be an easy fix if you know how. In our free Tuesday evening classes, over 3 weeks, you can learn to diagnose and fix some of the most common issues with your bike so you can keep pedalling. We start with how to fix punctures and how to remove wheels and tyres, then move on to brakes and how to change pads and adjust, and finish with gears, which are all important on the rolling local terrain! Email info@bradfordbikehub.com to book a place.

Tuesday evenings 5 – 7pm

University Bike Hub, opposite J.B. Priestley Library

30th June – Punctures

7th July – Brakes

14th July – Gears
