Cambridge is well known for it’s number of cyclist and cycling is often the easiest (and quickest) way to get around the city. With this in mind and as part of the University’s Environmental Sustainability Strategy, the School recently took ownership of five electric bikes. The electric bikes form part of the central university’s bike pool scheme and can be used to travel between university sites throughout the day.
What do I need to do if I want to use the bikes?
Anyone who wishes to use the bikes can register with the scheme by completing and submitting a user agreement. Your completed agreement form can either be handed in at the Clinical School reception desk or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can then book out a bike via the MICAD booking system any time you need/want to travel around the city providing you have your own cycling helmet.
Further information about the scheme and a link to the user agreement can be found here (Raven access required).
Keen to use the pool bikes but your confidence is holding you back?
Staff can now take advantage of training to improve their cycle skills. Classes are available from beginner to advanced. Advanced courses will be held in small groups while beginners will have the benefit of one to one tuition. Cambridge has a proud tradition of cycling, our city has the highest level of cycling in the UK, and we hope that this training will help staff to feel confident to continue this tradition and to take to the road.
