The Dacorum Cycle Hub

Mr Gates recently donated and installed bike racks to The Dacorum Cycle Hub, which aims to provide opportunities for everyone to enjoy the benefits of cycling, is a non-profit community cycle centre based at Grovehill/Woodhall Farm Adventure Playground. The Hub offers training and skills classes, repair services and bike hire alongside a thriving café and has proved a huge hit over the school summer holidays.

Mr Gates’ General Manager, Duncan Ashgrove visited the Hub recently to see the racks in action and see this wonderful local initiative being occupied as a community hub.

By way of thanks to all those involved in this community project a plaque, listing every company that had contributed (Mr Gates, The Window Company, JPS Projects, GB Electrical and BMA Contractors) was unveiled at the Hub.

Sunil Gates, Founder and Director of Mr Gates said: “This is a fantastic initiative and one we were delighted to be a part of it. Duncan went along to the launch event and was impressed with how the facility is already being used and the positive impact it looks set to have.”
