Bike Week is an annual opportunity to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. 

Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, the week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK, whether this be for fun, as a means of getting around to work or school, the local shops or just to visit friends. Join us to celebrate the week.

Tuesday 12 June: Bicycle User Group bike ride

(Depart from Nancy Astor Building cycle racks at 16:00)

Join other staff members for a peaceful group cycle ride along the Plym Valley Cycle Track via Saltram to Clearbrook/Yelverton. The ride will be relatively flat/gentle incline, mostly off road but with some on road, so suitable for less experienced cyclists. Come along for a gentle ride and meet some other cyclists from the University. All welcome. 

Contact meriel.fitzpatrick@plymouth.ac.uk for more details.

Thursday 14 June: Free Cyclist Breakfast 

(From 09:00, Reservoir Cafe)

The first 25 staff cyclists to bring an item to the Plymotion stand showing they cycled to the University will get a breakfast voucher. Sponsored by the Reservoir Café, University of Plymouth Vegetarian and Vegan Bistro.

Thursday 14 June: Dr Bike

(From 09:00, Drake's Place Reservoir)

Have a bike in need of some TLC? Dr Bike will be on campus as part of Bike Week to check everything on your bike from wheels, brakes, gears and tyre pressure to lights, racks, pedals, saddles and more. By the end, your bike will feel loved and cared for. Any minor adjustments required can be done to the bike there and then. Anything Dr Bike can't fix on site they will let you know exactly what needs doing and a rough guide to what it should cost at a bike shop. Checks will take up to 30 minutes, 

Please contact olivia.wells@plymouth.ac.uk to book your slot.
