Woodford Park bike hut


Wokingham Borough Council’s My Journey team opened its most recent bike hub at Woodford Park Leisure Centre on Tuesday 19 February, during the local schools half term.

Woodley Town Mayor, councillor Sam Rahmouni officially opened the new bike hub at the community event, which was attended by borough and town councillors.

Councillor Pauline Jorgensen, executive member for highways and transport, said: “My Journey has played a crucial role in keeping our residents healthy, and encourage cycling.

“This great new bike hut will allow My Journey to meet the needs of residents in and around Woodley and Earley, and encourage them to cycle more through events and activities on offer.”

Residents who attended the event were able to get their bikes serviced and get advice from the Dr Bike clinic.

Children were also offered bike training and learn to ride lessons and experienced cyclists were able to obtain Level 1 cycle skills, as well as practice braking and manoeuvres.

My Journey has two other bike hubs in the borough including one at Finchampstead Baptist Centre and at Montague Park Primary School, Wokingham.
