13 September is Cycle to Work day. You can pledge to join via the link below for a chance to win some great prizes.
To help you get going we’re giving away a free bike breakfast voucher to all those who commute to the University by bike on that day.
We will also have Dr Bike providing free bicycle maintenance, Cycle Republic to highlight our Cycle to Work scheme for discounted new bicycles and free security labels available for your bike.
If you don’t have a bike yet then don’t forget you could try a Readybike for free thanks to their great September offer. Free commute plus free breakfast can’t be bad! Alternatively come along to talk to Cycle Republic about getting your own bike in future to earn your breakfast voucher. Check out this blog from a recent user of the cycle2work scheme.
All of the above will be available outside Whiteknights House (by the Security Window, closest to Edith Morley (formerly HumSS), from 8.30am until 10.00am on Wednesday 13 September.
Breakfast vouchers for cyclists at London Road, valid for the Dairy, will also be available to collect from Bethan Miskell in the exams office in G02 L28 (next to the gymnasium).
Also on the 13th September will be the first Reading Bicycle Kitchen pop-up hosted at the University.
The DIY cycle workshop will also be running the first of a series of monthly pop ups in Palmer Foyer from 5pm. If you want to learn about maintaining your own bike / or can't make the breakfast Dr bike come along for help from some of their friendly volunteers. Find out how it works on their website at http://www.readingbicyclekitchen.org/
We also have our all things bike 'on your bike’ event on the 27th September in the smaller tent next to the dome, 12:00-16:00, including a second hand bike sale.
Watch this space for our programme of cycle training and maintenance throughout 2017/18.
