H.U.B. – acronym for “Helping Utilizing Bicycles”
A new initiative for 2014, The Lancaster Bicycle H.U.B. Information & Visitors Center is a partnership of Dream Ride Projects, The Lancaster Chamber of Commerce, and the City Lancaster to provide a community space focused on encouraging more bicycling in Lancaster City and the County of Lancaster.
This former visitors center on the first floor of the Southern Market Center, 100 S. Queen Street now houses information about bicycling throughout Lancaster City and is the new home for Dream Ride Projects. We’ve already welcomed hundreds of visitors from the Lancaster County Convention Center who now know where to come for bicycling related information.
A Lancaster Chamber affiliate employee accesses the Lancaster Chamber H.U.B., which is a part of the Information & Visitors Center and the Chambers efforts as a newly designated Bronze-level Bicycle Business to encourage its employees to bicycle more. The Chamber’s employee bike-share program called, The Lancaster Chamber H.UB. offers employees access to this secure indoor parking area as well as fleet of three bicycles to encourage short trips around the City for meetings or even lunch.
In 2014, as part of the “First Fridays” in Lancaster City, the Lancaster Bicycle H.UB. played host to local artists and planned activities related to bicycling such as “Historic Scavenger Hunts”, and bicycle safety demonstrations.
And the Lancaster Bicycle H.U.B. Information & Visitors Center works with local bicycling groups to host community meetings and presentations like this Annual Meeting for the Lancaster League of American Bicyclists where local lawyers Bruce Roth & John May from The Personal Injury Law Group, LLC presented, The PA Vehicle Code, The Law & Your Rights as a Bicyclist.
The Lancaster Bicycle H.U.B. hosted the National Bike to Work Day 2014 First Annual Lancaster City Spoke n’ Gear Bicycle Expo as part of National Bike to Work Day.
