Hello everyone, and welcome to our May newsletter. Keep reading to meet a new team member, find out what’s on at the Hub, and for your chance to win tickets to see Sophie Ellis Bexter! There’s also news of grants for community groups and small businesses to make cycling easier for staff, so if you know someone who might benefit please spread the word.

If you feel like you have time to spare we always welcome new volunteers with open arms! There’s a surprising range of jobs to get involved with from fettling to admin, sales and information to supporting our social rides. Please don’t hesitate to drop us a line or come along to our monthly volunteers and supporters meeting at 7pm on the 7th May to find out more.

Love, peace and bicycle grease,

Rebecca & the YCBH Core Team

Cai joins us from Access Bike in Stroud where he worked for seven years, first as a volunteer then as an employee, before moving on to the commercial environment of Evans Cycles. He is passionate about bikes – riding, building, repairing and has great experience to bring to the team.

Win Tickets to see Sophie Ellis-Bexter!

This could be:

Favourite cycling memory

Place you’d love to go by bike

Best cake recipe or cafe to visit

Most epic ride

Anything else!

A separate draw for another pair of tickets is being run via a post box in our hub in Yate Shopping Centre.  Each person gets one entry per draw, so one person can enter via both methods to improve their chances of winning. Entries close 13th May, so let’s hear your cycling stories!

Funding Success!

The Hub received more good news this week with confirmation of a grant from Cycling UK’s Big Bike Revival to provide Rusty Riders Skills and Social Rides for adult beginners and Dr Bike sessions through the summer! See below for dates and to book your place!
