The Spokes Bicycle Dance Troupe : Manchester’s all-female mini-bicycle dance troupe rehearse at the Hub each Monday. We are grown women attempting to dance on children’s bikes. Think synchronised swimming, with comedy, and wheels! We are always on the look out for new members who have the enthusiasm for trying something new, fun, and silly. No experience of performance or bike tricks necessary, just pop down to any of our weekly sessions. More info here.. Spokes Fab New Website
Every Thursday 4-7pm:
1 -1 and Small Group tuition : Back to school, but this time it’s fun. Get taught how to keep your bike safe, legal and rattle free by our team of experienced volunteer mechanics. Classroom bikes and tools provided. No set fees, you just make a donation to the hub if you are able.
Thursday Mornings :
Bambino Bikes : Hire a bicycle with a child seat and ride with other mums. More details from Anna.
Tool Club : Introduced by Cycling UK, Tool Club allows you to use our facilities and tools to carry out your own repairs. We provide supervision and equipment in return for a small donation. Ideal for those unable to pay full market rates at the high street bikeshops. Some new spare parts can be purchased at fair rates, we also have a range of reconditioned parts available. You can also bring your own and we’ll help you fit them too.
Please note registration is required and we are unable to provide a warranty on the work completed (as you do it yourself). Not all projects / repairs / people are suitable for tool club, but we have a repair service available for those. Contact us by Email or on Twitter or Facebook for more information or to book a place.

We’ll work on anything – from basic safety checks on new bikes all the way through to full monty rebuilds our experienced mechanics can take the hassle out of it for you.
