Bike Buddy

If you’re thinking of riding to work but have some reservations, the Hub can help! Our Bike Buddy service is a one-off guided ride teaching you everything you need to know to commute by bike.

How it works

One of our staff will accompany you for your first journey to work, door-to-door, to make sure everything goes well. We’ll show you the best route to take, how to navigate any junctions, and chat the whole way with advice about bikes, clothes, kit, and anything else you might need to know.
Your journey needs to either start or finish in Stockton-on-Tees to be eligible


Do I need a helmet?

You don’t have to wear one, but it’s not a bad idea

Do I need a bike?

Yes, you will need to be riding your own bike on the day

How fast will we ride?

We’ll go at whatever pace is comfortable for you

How far can the journey be?

As long as one end of the journey is in Stockton-on-Tees, and the other end is within the Tees Valley, we’re happy.
