Help keep the wheels turning at Chrisp Street Community Cycle Hub

26/10/2021

In September, we worked in partnership with Hubbub and Sustrans to launch a pilot community cycle hub in Chrisp Street market, Poplar. And now we need your help to keep the cycle hub open next year.

Please support the cycle hub crowdfunder campaign by liking, commenting on and sharing the SpaceHive page, and if you can, pledge as little as £2 to help keep activities going in 2022.

How will the crowdfunder help?

Safety, confidence and cycle storage are some of the main barriers to cycling being addressed by Chrisp Street Community Cycle Hub.

Since the pilot launched in September, the cycle hub has loaned over 100 bikes, and more than 320 people have taken part in an activity.

Without losing momentum, we want to more support families to continue cycling over winter, as well as train up local cycle volunteers and guide them into paid employment.

Next year, the hub also plans to host a bike swap event for local residents, a women’s only cycle club, and a bike library for children’s bikes.

You can read more about the proposals for the next phase of the cycle hub on the SpaceHive crowdfunder page.
