Staff Pool Bike Scheme

A staff pool bike scheme is available at three University sites.

Many University staff have to travel between sites and other local areas during their work day so, to help you get the most out of your day we have a pool bike scheme to speed you to your meetings with minimal effort and fuss.

We have 4 electric bikes and 5 hybrid-style bikes that can accommodate you whatever your size, clothing or fitness.

Panniers are provided to keep your notebook, tablet and other equipment safe whilst locks and helmets will keep you and the bike safe.

We guarantee there is no quicker way to travel journeys under 5 miles round the city and the electric bikes will ensure you arrive sweat and crumple free.
