Finally, we also have some non-electric bikes available for staff to use. These are bikes that have been donated by staff and renovated by a local bike shop, so they have more of a ‘hand-me-down’ feel.
They are kept in a secure bike shed at Sci-Tech Daresbury, between A and B Blocks, and are kept locked with combination locks. Please lock them securely if you leave them unattended off-campus. They are kitted out with bells, luggage racks, and USB-rechargeable front and rear lights. There are charging points in the bike shed - if you plan to use a bike in the dark, please ensure the lights are charged before you leave (an hour should be plenty).
When using the bikes, you are responsible for your own safety. Please check the correct functioning of the bike (brakes, tyres, etc) before taking one out. You may need to adjust the seat height. There is a toolkit located in the bike shed, including a track pump. Report any issues using this form.
To take a bike out, please fill in the booking form. Your personal details are kept private and will only be used to contact you regarding this scheme.
