Below we've set out just some of the amazing reasons we believe Rob and Dalby Forest Cycle Hub are worthy of your vote.
Rob has helped hundreds of kids learn to ride independently
Rob's 'Learn to Ride in 90 Minutes’ programme has not just taught cycling skills to young participants but also instilled in them confidence and the benefits of being outdoors. He developed the programme to bypass the stabilisers stage and now several groups of young children every year learn how to ride independently in double-quick time, thanks to this course.
Rob also created courses to help children take the next steps on their cycling journey.
People who need adapted bikes can enjoy cycling thanks to the fleet Rob has created
Rob's passion for cycling has paved the way for people with additional needs to experience the enjoyment of cycling in the breathtaking venue that is Dalby Forest. In addition to our fleet of mountain and e-mountain bikes, Rob has carefully developed a fleet of high end, e-adapted bikes with electric assistance to enable everybody to get cycling. He has also supported and advised cyclists who wanted to invest in their own adapted bike.

He works with specialist schools and disability groups too
Rob also works closely with specialist schools and disability groups to understand and overcome challenges, ensuring everyone finds the perfect e-adapted bike at Dalby Forest Cycle Hub. This also includes local residential homes, which have been able to bring residents to Dalby Forest to enjoy the fresh air, sights and sounds, thanks to the fleet of bikes Rob has put together.
