Free bike check-up on campus for Bike Week 2012

This weekend marks the beginning of Bike Week 2012, a national event to encourage everyday cycling, and the University is celebrating with a number of cycling related activities on Friday, 15 June.

A Bike Doctor will be located outside Maxwell building from 7.30am to 9.30am to perform free bike check-ups, make minor repairs and give advice on general maintenance and repairs. This is a great opportunity to make sure your bike is fully operational or to dig out an old bike and make it roadworthy again.

Evans Cycles will be in Maxwell Foyer between 12 and 2pm to advise on the savings you can make through the University’s Cycle to Work Scheme and to find out about the types of bikes available.  A qualified cycle training instructor will also be available to provide information about cycle training opportunities for all levels and you can register your interest for a free cycle training session later in the summer.

Applications for the latest Cycle to Work Scheme window can be submitted until 22 June. To apply for the Scheme, or for more information, please visit
