Travelling in icy conditions

During the winter months, icy conditions can make travelling to and from the campus difficult. Read more about gritting and salting on campus.

Cycling in icy conditions

Winter weather conditions can also sometimes be challenging for cyclists and hospitals experience a sharp increase of cycling related injuries.

The greatest risk is often icy surfaces and hidden obstructions; cyclists should consider the road and weather conditions before setting off. If conditions are icy or slippery they should consider other means of transport such as public transport or lift sharing.

Bath and North East Somerset Council offer guidance in the form of a 'Think Twice' cycling in icy weather leaflet, case study information and a free 2-hour adult cycling training.
