Stockton Active Travel runs a variety of walking and cycling activities throughout the Stockton area. The project is based at The Hub in central Stockton, a dedicated one-stop resource centre providing volunteering opportunities, training, information and outreach services to give people the skills and equipment that they need to walk and cycle more often.
The Hub provides free, safe and secure bike storage, including lockers and changing rooms for people travelling into Stockton, .
We are open from Monday to Friday, 7.30am – 5:30pm.
Information, advice and community engagement schemes
Pop into the Hub from Monday to Friday, where the Active Travel team are on hand to offer advice on walking and cycling routes, local maps, public transport information and personalised route planning advice.
The Hub offers a free half day maintenance course once monthly. Please see our dedicated page or contact us for information about cycle maintenance classes at the Hub.
Guided walks and cycle rides
A variety of regular weekday and weekend guided rides and walks set off from the Hub and other locations in the Stockton area. Our bike rides cater for all abilities from returning cyclists and beginners in our ‘Easy Riders’ program to the more adventurous Wednesday rides.
Bicycle Recycling Scheme
Our partnership with the Arrivals Practise in Norton has been running for 9 months in which time we have reconditioned and loaned bikes out to vulnerable members of Stockton’s community. The loans are made based upon a doctor’s referral and the bikes are reconditioned on our premises by trained volunteers and staff members.
