Active Travel

Whatever your reasons for walking or cycling to campus this year, this is the page for you! 

By cycling or walking to campus, you can help to reduce the amount of carbon used by buses and cars and see amazing benefits to your health and wellbeing. We know it can be pretty daunting to make the trip up Mount Bathwick Hill on a bike so were delighted that the University has granted the SU £10,000 to invest in making cycling to campus more accessible. This includes:

  • Investing in gear for students to hire. Things like bike helmets and phone holders for GPS. The SU already has bikes that you can hire from
  • Installing Grease Monkeys bike repair stations for any maintenance emergencies on campus and at Dartmouth Avenue. We hope to have these installed ready for September 2021.
  • Offering cycling sessions for students to feel more confident riding on the roads. We are researching providers to find the right opportunities to make you feel safe.
