The Bia Hub

a Friendly space for our cycling community

The Bia Hub is the physical embodiment of the Bia brand, and fosters a warm, friendly and welcoming ethos and environment, both to work in and to welcome customers into.

Jenni, owner and founder of the Bia brand is at The Hub most days, chatting, advising and of course drinking coffee – along with the precious little Phoebe, fondly known as ‘Poppet’.

Following a career in the cycling industry, and having ridden bikes since childhood, creating Bia, and all that comes with it, is a dream fulfilled for Jenni.

Having been involved in producing  world-class mass participation cycling, walking and running events, UCI level races as well as bespoke luxurious ‘escapes’, Jenni’s passion for the sport, seeing women on bikes and exploring the world all come together in the brand that is Bia. 

Our customer experience staff in the café all strive to welcome absolutely everyone, whether you ride a bike or not! The Hub is a community space that welcomes warm, kind and friendly people, so do pop in and have a coffee and a chat! We look forward to meeting you!

the Workshop

Fernando (fondly known as Ferdi) is our legendary, friendly, warm and knowledgeable head mechanic. If you’ve popped into The Hub, you will no doubt have met him!

A little about him

Fernando, fondly known as Ferdi (and sometimes known as Fergi!) joined us in May 2021, and offers superior customer service, both in knowledge and in his welcoming and warm disposition. After deciding he would like a career change, Ferdi put himself through Cytec level 2 and after working at Specialized and Evan’s as a Head Mechanic, we are now very glad to call him ours. He is a long time bike enthusiast, and is extremely thorough and meticulous, so when your precious steed is in his hands, you know it’s with the best. Attention to detail and an eye for perfection, we know that the service you’ll receive from Ferdi will be superior. In fact, all his qualifications are listed below to give you further peace of mind:

  • Cyctec level 1 and 2
  • Brompton level 4
  • Bosch, Brose E-Bike
  • Di2 & Shimano Steps E-Bike
  • Specialising in Scott, Specialized, Trek & Cannondale & Canyon.

Booking a service at The Bia Hub

While the bicycle industry, among many others, is battling with supply chain service delivery issues, we are doing our best to keep our customers riding! Most suppliers are experiencing long delays in availability of day-to-day stock, so we will manage each customer’s booking on a one-on-one basis, and do our best to source parts you may need to get your bike running 100% again.

If you’re not sure what service your bike requires, please pop in to The Bia Hub, Tuesday through Saturday to have Ferdi assess your bike and advise what may need doing. This will help us streamline the booking process, ensure we have you booked in for the correct service, and that we have all the parts you need. If need be, you can leave your bike with us until the service is complete.

While your appointment is scheduled for the time you have chosen, please drop your bike to The Bike Hub either the day before, or as close to 10am on the day of the service. While, as you have booked a slot, we may run early or late, depending on what other services are booked, so it helps workflow if the bikes scheduled for the day are all received early.

We are operating during our busiest months through until October, and so really appreciate your understanding and flexibility with regards to the rigid times this system lays out for us.

If you know what service you require, feel free to book your own service using our convenient booking system.

We are also available on 0118 929 1004 during our opening hours if you would like to call and have a chat.

the Café now Velolife at The Bia Hub

What is cycling without coffee? What is a ride without a cafe stop with a great coffee and a special little cake treat?

Come and share a cuppa with us before, during or after a ride. Bring a friend. Meet a friend. Make a friend. That’s what our Hub is all about.

We offer a great brew, with milk alternatives as a standard, as well as gluten-free, vegan and ‘normal’ treats.
If you ride, or if you don’t, our coffee and treats are sure to win you over.

A few ways The Bia Hub can help you get on a bike

The government’s ‘Cycle to work’ scheme allows new avenues for employees to get cycling, at a relatively reduced cost: it allows employees to buy a bike tax free, usually through salary sacrifice.

Everyone wins: employees make big savings on new bikes, employers get a healthier workforce and save money too.

Here are the scheme’s we’re affialited with:

  • Bike 2 work
  • Cycle scheme
  • GCI
  • Cycle Solutions
