Cycling at University

Want to know what facilities and resources the University has for students who cycle? Listed here are just some of the ones which I think might be the most helpful: 

  • Discounts at local bike shops – To benefit from these discounts just show your student card when making your purchase!
  • Bike parking all around Edinburgh – this includes both campus buildings and accommodation. You can find out if your accommodation has bike storage in the “Property Features” section of your accommodation. 
  • Free Bike toolkit – toolkit containing tools in case of emergency maintenance such as a punctured tire. 
  • Doctor Bike – a fully qualified bike mechanic who regularly visits the University to help fix minor bike problems and provide maintenance advice (currently unavailable due to COVID-19). 

You can find more information about each resource as well as further resources:
