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:
