Professional bike mechanics from Julian House Bike Workshop will be running two fully-funded workshops on campus in May.

Over 2.5 hours, you’ll learn basic bicycle maintenance and safety tips to keep (or get) your bike roadworthy.

Topics covered will include:

  • repairing a puncture
  • what to do if your chain slips off
  • replacing brakes and cables

The workshops are aimed at staff who want to (or already do) cycle to campus as an alternative to driving or using public transport. You won’t need to bring a bike to the session. Each staff member will attend one session.

Dates and booking

  • Monday 16 May 12.00-2.30pm
  • Thursday 26 May 11am-1.30pm

Fill in the form to register for one of the sessions.

Allocation will be on a first come, first served basis.

The University encourages active travel and therefore would encourage line managers to allow staff to take part in this training as part of their normal working day. As it will be taking place during normal working hours, if staff who wish to attend can be sure to speak early with their line manager so that they can be as supportive as they can where release may be an issue.

Bicycle Users Group

These workshops are organised by the Bicycle Users Group (BUG) with funding from the Net Zero Carbon Campus Fund.

If you cycle to campus - or are considering starting - the BUG is a great way to get advice and meet other cyclists.
