Cycling to campus from the city centre takes around 22 minutes (or under 30 minutes from Oldfield Park)

9:00am - 4:00pm

Bring your bike for a free service, providing a basic safety and maintenance check.

Julian House Bike Workshop's mechanics will check your bike over, including any adjustments and tuning as required to brakes and gears. They can undertake basic repairs, and if any minor, new parts are required, you will be able to pay for them to be fitted there and then. If your bike requires more work then they can provide you with a quote to have it fixed in their Bath workshop.

Bikes will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis.

Bike marking

9:00am - 4:00pm

Avon and Somerset Police will join us to offer a free bike marking service. You can have your bike marked with a trackable code and registered to the national database. This can help deter thieves and also means that should your bike ever be stolen, if it is found, then it can be identified as yours, and police can track it back to you.

Affordable bikes

9:00am - 4:00pm

If you need a bike, Julian House Bike Workshop offers a range of fully refurbished and serviced bikes at great prices. If you're looking for a bargain, these bikes also come with a 3-month warranty for extra peace of mind.

At this event, there will be a selection of these bikes on campus for anyone interested to buy one. They also have a wider selection, including new bikes, available from their shop.

E-bikes and e-scooters

11:00am - 3:00pm

For anyone interested in purchasing an e-bike, there will be an opportunity to try out an e-bike on the day. Local supplier, Take Charge Bikes will be there to give tips and expert guidance about how to use an e-bike, the various options available (from a standard e-bike to folding or cargo options), and to give advice about what to buy for any interested to find out more.

Tier e-bikes and e-scooters will be there, and they will be giving out free helmets (to anyone that downloads and verifies the app). Tier offers a 35% discount for University staff and students through the UK Access Scheme.
