You will recieve a confirmation email that means your bike is booked and you can collect the keys. When collecting the keys you need to read & sign the agreement form , also available in paper copy in the SU activities office. 

Upon collecting keys you will be given a Checklist which should be completed if there are any issues with the bike before, during & after use. When securing bikes off campus you should take pictures of the bike locked up correctly with frame and wheel padlocked.

There are 2 padlocks for the bikes, 1 must be left on campus on the bike stand where you found the bike, the other you must take for padlocking away from campus. Lose your keys, pay the fee.
