The new Warrington Cycle Hub will officially open its doors on Saturday 15 June, providing a range of services, including cycle hire and storage, maintenance and pop-up events. The project will provide a real boost to cycling in the heart of the town.

Cheshire Cycles – who currently have another successful business in Appleton Thorn – have been granted the contract by the council to deliver the hub. Their knowledgeable team of staff will be able to offer professional support on all things cycling.

The new unit is based on Crown Street, in one of the units underneath the railway in the arches. Work is now being finalised internally to fit out the unit and prepare the shop for its opening.

The project forms part of Warrington’s sustainable transport programme, which is delivering several projects aimed at transforming transport and active travel in the borough and making walking and cycling safer, easier and more accessible.

Mike Carlin, owner of Cheshire Cycles and Warrington Cycle Hub, said: “We are so excited to open the Warrington Cycle Hub and are grateful to Warrington Borough Council for selecting us to receive the funding to support this project. We can’t wait to share the knowledge and experience the team have through the Hub.”

Director of transport and environment at Warrington Borough Council, David Boyer, said: "It’s great news that the brand-new Warrington Cycle Hub will soon be opening its doors in our town centre. It will be a fantastic asset, offering support and guidance for those who want to try cycling, along with all the essential services local cyclists need under one roof – from maintenance and repairs to bike hire and storage.”
