The Children’s Centre on Cranleigh Court Road, Yate was the venue for the official opening of the new cycle hub where families can now access a range of bikes suitable for men, women and children.

The cycle hubs have been introduced to help boost sustainable travel and provide support to families in priority neighbourhoods to give children a healthy start in life.

Wendy Rycroft, Development Leader for the Children’s Centres, said: “We’re very pleased to be able to offer this new facility to local families.

“The new cycle hubs will offer wonderful opportunities for parents to spend more time with their children while getting active and having fun. They will also have the chance to build their confidence through cycle training to help them explore beautiful South Gloucestershire by bike.”

Later this month, the cycle hubs will be expanding to other children’s centre locations including:

Patchway on Tuesday 15 April

Cadbury Heath on Wednesday 16 April

Staple Hill on Monday 28 April.

Each centre will stock four adult bikes for loan. Two of the cycles have child seats attached and trailers are also available for use with adult bikes. Balance bikes are also available for toddlers.

The project has been funded through the Local Sustainable Transport Fund and delivered in partnership with Sustrans.
