From humble beginnings in a little corner shop back in the early 1980s, The Hub Cycle Centre is now Hawke’s Bay’s leading independent cycle store and the largest stockist of international bike brands Giant and Specialized in the region.
The Hub is owned and operated by Robert Oliver, ably supported by a dedicated team of passionate cyclists, who between them share more than 80 years cycling retail experience.
The Hub Cycle Centre has been an integral part of the development of cycling in Hawke’s Bay. From the early days of selling and servicing ten-speeds to today's sleek advanced race machines, one thing has remained constant – a love of bikes and riding.
At The Hub Cycle Centre we are committed to finding the right bike for you. Our on-going professional development sees us attending workshops, seminars and product launches throughout the world to stay up-to-date with new technology and practices, ensuring you will always receive the latest and most relevant advice and service.
All of us at The Hub are active supporters of bike events and local cycling clubs. And some of our customers have gone on to achieve great things in the world of cycling. We are immensely proud of them and have continued to support their quest as elite athletes. Among these customers are former Junior World Champion Jeremy Yates, Westley Gough - two time Olympic bronze medallist and World Track Championship medallist, and Regan Gough - 2 x Junior World Track Champion, World Team Pursuit Champion, National Criterium Champion, New Zealand U23 Road and Timetrial Champion.
Every weekend, and most days after work, we can be found racing, training or cruising Hawke’s Bay’s roads, trails and pathways with our friends and family, sharing cycling happiness.
Meet the team.
