Adopt a School Program
We work with a number of secondary schools in delivering cycling safety & maintenance training to transition year students (TY). Companies can support schools by sponsoring a training program in disadvantaged areas.
This program is focused on delivering bike mechanics and safe cycling training to transition year’s students (4th class), catering for a group of up to 24 students per class.

Upcyclers Program - Donate Bikes
Upcyclers are a core activity contributing to the circular economy through the recycling and reuse of existing materials.
The Bike Hub Upcyclers program focuses on restoring previously loved bikes with the aim of donating them to people on low income, refugees and other vulnerable groups. Recipients of these bikes also receive bells, locks, helmets and, if required, some training in cycling and maintenance.
The bikes are obtained through donations and from recycling centres.
Spare parts can be new as well as reconditioned.
Labour can be provided through a combination of paid staff, volunteers, trainees (in training programmes or doing on-the-job-training) and the recipients of the bikes themselves.
Volunteer! - Donate Time
The Bike Hub primary function is to bring all members of the community to enjoy cycling and connect at a human level.
We partner with several different charities and community organisations. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer we would be delighted if you could support some of the programs and initiatives currently in place.
The Bike Hub runs a variety of bike-focused initiatives. Volunteers are very welcome to join our programs, to provide much needed support in exchange of learning additional life skills. All volunteers need to be Garda Vetted.
