Monty's Bike Hub



Just wanted to ask something because you might know two people named kelly bendall Connor Giles.

What morning afternoon evening activities sessions do they go to here and what days

Many thanks

This can’t be for real. I’m petty sure that’s a rubber band near the crank 😁
Imagine this on our Isle of Wight trip 😮
Love this
Thanks for today! Front mech running smoothly, new chain is silky, just got to switch the rear wheel.. it's dead Jim. :D
We hope you all have the best time cycling on the Island Monty's Bike Hub 😀
Good value gloves in Aldi
(Monday's off to Maytree primary school & Clovelly sure start centre.) Thanks to My Journey Zedify Winchester/Southampton and Josh @ Monty's Bike Hub
A few of us are gonna do this. Maybe fancy joining us?
Here are all the photos from the Sporterium 2021 page I could find of anything to do with Monty’s. I’ve downloaded them full size full quality and stuck em in a folder of my own.
Thank you for fixing up the boys bike.
Stabilisers ditched and off to ride round Glastonbury.
Tha work you all do is truly amazing 🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴
Seems fair and sensible to me. It’s how we should, as motorists, be driving already. As long as pedestrians and cyclists don’t assume or take for granted the proposed new hierarchy then it should be fine. Thoughts?

Are you giving anything up over the next 40 days? Lent begins tomorrow and we're encouraging everyone to cycle or walk local journeys.

It's not about giving up the car completely. It's about aiming to cut your carbon footprint on those shorter distances. #DriveLessForLent

Last week we took a bunch of our older teenagers on an epic ride from Bournemouth back home!! It was a fantastic effort by everyone and was certainly made more challenging by sand mounds over the promenade at the beach, hail showers and multiple punctures!

We would highly recommend days out like this, we got the train to Bournemouth then barely went on a main road back which ks perfect for new riders and young people. You can see our route on our Kamoot page, Link below. This included much of Sustrans NCN route 2 as well as some awesome New Forest Gravel Trails.


If you want to support our work and help us to continue give young people new experiences and challenges like this you can donate here 🙏


Lots of bike repair sessions this week as the weather is hopefully staying more springlike! Why get your bikes out the shed and ready for the new season 😬👍

➡️ Tuesday afternoon 12-4pm FREE Cycling UK bike dr at our workshop in Sholing
➡️ Wednesday 10-2pm My Journey #bikedr in Bitterne Precinct
➡️ Wednesday Eve 6.30-8pm adult bike maintenance training and open workshop, booking required via

Great first half term bike ride today! Was great to head down to the shore into Westwood And Vicky park and back. But sad to have to traverse the washed away path down there! Good news is the council are improving this section soon anyways so hopefully will be fixed soon? Southampton City Council My Journey ??

Our workshop will be closed for the rest of this week as running various rides for different age groups. Please don't turn up for repairs, sales or donations unless we have specifically asked you to. THANKS 🙏


Looks like a super fun way to end the half term 👇

Fantastic vision and values sessions this week at our adult and youth bike workshops. Was great to have pizza, chat about where we have come from, think about our values as an organisation plus come up with some awesome new ideas for where we want to go!

Thanks all for taking part, and neighbours Artinos pizza for discount pizza 😊 We are always open to hearing new ideas and thoughts from the local community, so do message us or chat to one of the team at a session whenever you fancy!



This is an exciting and significant new role overseeing our youth and children's provision, providing wide-ranging support for our incredible volunteers, and developing our 'Young Leaders' and 'Out of Comfort Zone' programmes.

Our ideal applicant will have experience working with children and young people, responding to safeguarding concerns, and supporting individuals and teams to flourish. As a grassroots and volunteer-led charity, we’re not looking for someone to simply run our youth work, but rather someone who can support our incredible teams of volunteers to continue delivering and developing our exciting range of youth/children's provision.

This will be a part time position, for up to 16hrs per week – including Tues evenings, Weds afternoons, and some Thursdays. The successful applicant will be offered some flexible working hours, a high degree of autonomy, exciting opportunities for ongoing training and development, wellbeing support, pension contributions, and a starting salary of between £8,760-£10,512 per year (£10.50-£12.60 per hour) depending on qualifications and experience.

We’re looking for someone to start in April/May 2022. This will be for an initial 15-month fixed-term contract, with the possibility of becoming a permanent role in 2023.

HOW TO APPLY // The deadline for applications is Sunday 20th March - with interviews on Weds 30th March. To view the full Job Description and Person Specification, and to apply for the job please visit

ABOUT MONTY’S // We’re is a grassroots community-development charity based at the heart of our neighbourhood on the edge of Southampton. Starting life in 2013, when a group of volunteers from the local church and community saved our youth centre from closure, Monty's was soon reimagined as an inclusive 'community hub' for people of all ages. We have since grown to include over forty volunteers hosting a dozen weekly activities and regular community events with hundreds of people. We also run Monty's Bike Hub, a social enterprise encouraging all things cycling on the east of the city. We are faith-based but not faith-biased; we are passionately inclusive within all aspects of the charity. Our vision is to enable the personal, social and spiritual growth of local residents; in partnership with our local community; so that we can all enjoy abundant life within a flourishing neighbourhood.

We should all be used to keeping a distance by now. New Highway Code rules advise drivers leave at least 1.5 metres when overtaking cyclists - and even more space in bad weather, at night or if travelling at over 30mph.

We love helping families get cycling! Was great to get these pics back the other day after helping this lot get out and about in the January sunshine!

We are very happy to give you advice on kids seats / trailers / bikes sizes etc and also have a load of kids seats / helmets in stock. So get in touch or come have a chat about how we can help!

We have a couple trailers we can lend out as well, and a very family friendly social ride on a Tuesday morning which preschool children are very welcome to attend with kids in seats/ trailers.

A hierarchy of road users doesn't remove the individual responsibility we have for our safety. It just places greater responsibility on those that pose the greatest risk. This new rule will help make our roads safer, particularly for the most vulnerable users.

Our Story

* we have all the tools you need for basic bike maintenance
* we'll lend you a complete tool set and stand when you bring you bike along
* workshop use is free, but there's a small charge for parts (tubes, cables, pads, etc)

MONTY'S BIKE HUB: Bicycle Repair Service
We regularly run 'Bike Doctor' sessions at Monty’s, which is the best place to get your bike checked over and fixed up for free. However, if you can't join us at any of our sessions, or if can't mend your bike yourself in our workshop, please contact us or drop your bike round during our opening hours and our bike team can have a look at it for you. (We are currently working out a pricing structure for Bike Servicing, so it will all be quite flexible as we develop the service.)

MONTY'S BIKE HUB: Bicycle Recycling
We now collect unwanted secondhand bikes, which we then recycle, repair and retail at reasonable prices to the local community. All profits are used to support Monty's - so if you have an unused or unwanted bike sat in your shed, please call and we will arrange collection. Please also get in touch if you are interested in buying a good value second hand bike.

DO YOU WANT TO GET INVOLVED? We're always on the lookout for volunteers or people with ideas or skills to share with our community - get in touch if you'd like to chat about what we could do together. As we grow, we are also hoping to employ local bike mechanics to repair and recycle secondhand bikes for resale. Check our page for updates, or get in touch (via Facebook or our contact page) to find out more about how you can join in...
