Cycling is a relatively cheap form of transport. It helps to keep you fit and healthy and is emission free making it good for our planet. 19% of our community regularly cycle to campus. The University has invested over £600,000 to improve cycling facilities. We hope this on-going programme will help encourage yet more cyclists.
We want our cyclists bikes to be in tip top condition and have organised for Dr Bike to be at the Cycle Repair Centre (recycling zone, rear of Congregation Hall),

UEA has introduced a C2W scheme which allows you to select a cycle and associated safety equipment (up to £1,000 in value) from a number of local suppliers. UEA will then purchase that package and hire it to you for a period of 12 months. Your monthly salary will be reduced by the amount of the hire charge (equivalent to 94% of the cycle cost), under a salary sacrifice scheme.

Over 100,000 bikes were stolen across the UK last year; less than 5% were returned as the Police were unable to trace the owner.
Register the ownership details of your bike and make them viewable to Police nationwide FREE for life on the Immobilise Property Register. It only takes a minute and it is free of charge. All you need is your bikes make, model, frame and other identifying numbers. Please click hereto view the Immobilise scheme leaflet which indicates where you can find identifying numbers. Once registered you will have a greater chance of getting it back if it is stolen. This is because the identifiers and your contact details are viewable on the Police national stolen property database systems.
A universal cycle pump has been purchased and is available (free of charge) to those cyclists who find themselves with a puncture on campus but with no pump. The pump is kept at the Lodge.
