Bike hire

U-Cycle offers the convenience of cycling without the expense of owning your own bike. 

The scheme is designed for both staff and students. It lets you pick from a range of bikes. You can hire bikes for a term or the entire year. 

All the bikes are well maintained and fully serviced so you can travel across and between campuses with ease.

 

What you need to know

The rental process is quick and easy. Simply go to the U-Cycle website, choose your bike size, pay and collect. You'll also need to check all your contact information is correct and decide how long you want to rent for.

When you collect your rental bike you'll need to bring your:

  • driving licence, passport, or equivalent form of photo ID
  • student ID (if applicable)
  • address, email and phone number
  • emergency contact number 

You’ll need to leave a £50 security deposit when you collect your rental bike. This will be fully refunded when you return your bike. 

For more information on cost, liability and maintenance, visit our cycle hire web page or the U-Cycle website

If you experience problems with the payment page, send an email to info@ucycle.org with details of bike size and your chosen rental period.
