Borrow A Bike

The Borrow a Bike scheme allows University staff to test a bike for up to 3 months for the commute to work.

We are working with Outspoken Cycles to deliver the scheme which will allow staff to choose from a range of bikes including city, hybrid, electric, folding and cargo bikes at a subsidised price of £10 per month.

New for 2022 - Eddington Key Worker Housing Residents Borrow a Bike. As part of the university's commitment to creating a sustainable place to live in Eddington. The University "Borrow a bike" scheme has been amended, maintaining access to all University staff members, and now will include those living within key worker housing in Eddington. 

To find out more about the scheme and to book your Eddington bike loan, follow this link.

Both schemes provide the opportunity for university staff and Eddington key worker housing residents to try their commute by bike before investing in purchasing one themselves.

Induction events will be held each month to allow users of the scheme to pick up and drop off the bikes, alternatively a pick-up and drop off service can be arranged for an additional cost. Eligibility checks for the scheme will be carried out before the cycle is issued.

Pool bikes

The University is committed to providing sustainable travel options for staff travelling to and from work and at work. The University is spread across many sites in Cambridge and staff often need to travel throughout the working day. Pool bike schemes have been put in place across the University for staff to use to travel between meetings. If you are a member of staff and would like to find out more about the scheme and how to use the pool bikes, click here. 

Cycle hire and cycle loans

There are many places to hire a bike from in Cambridge to help you get around if you don't have your own bike.
