Cycle to Work for a free breakfast on Weds 3 October

27 Sep 2012

Plus FREE pre-winter bike checks and security marking

Revolver bike checks

The Corridor monthly cycle rides continue on Wednesday 3rd October at University Place, with additional incentives:

Pre-Winter Bike Health Checks 8.20am – 9.30am

As an additional incentive this month Revolve MCR, a mobile cycle mechanic, will be positioned outside University Place giving your bike a well needed pre-winter health check.

University Security Marking 8.20am – 9am

Ian Halliwell, Crime Reduction Advisor, will be on hand to security mark bikes so they are registered on a University database. If you are not one of the 1000+ who have had their bike marked come along between 8.20am and 9am.

For more details about the scheme and regular bike marking dates go to:

£10 d-locks (£15 after 1st October)

The vast majority of bikes that are stolen at the University have poor quality cable locks. The University is helping you increase your security by subsidising quality d-locks to only £10 (rrp £35). Purchase yours from the online shop.

Please note: All staff and students are eligible but must have their bike marked. It is possible to purchase in advance and collect at a bike marking event but prior arrangement with Ian Halliwell is required.  Contact Ian Halliwell at:

Usual Guided Routes

Join a guided route, specifically set up for new riders, or come along under your own steam for a free breakfast, raffle and chance to feel part of Oxford Road’s great cycling community.

Breakfast will be from 820am until 9am and we hope to see you there.
