Bike week

This year's Bike Week will take place from 17-21 June, with various events taking place on campus.

On Wednesday 19 June, a free breakfast will be on offer in The Refectory from 7.30am to 10am for staff and students who cycle to University or would like to know more about cycling. This is a great opportunity to meet other cyclists and to bring along friends and colleagues who are keen to start cycling to University. Edinburgh Bicycle Cooperative, who run the Cycle to Work scheme at the University will also be there to answer any questions, and all attendees will be able to enter a prize draw to win a £350 bike.

More information about the Cycle to Work scheme can be found on the staff benefits website.

On the same day there will also be a panel debate, 'How to get Leeds cycling?', which will give you the chance to put your own questions to a panel about Leeds' cycling future. The evening will bring together four people with different perspectives on if and how we might get Leeds cycling. The panel consists of:

  • Andrew Hall, Acting Head of Transport Policy at Leeds City Council
  • Dave Horton, Cycling academic and consultant, Thinking about Cycling blog
  • Lea Ruzich, Masters student at the Institute of Transport Studies
  • Ian Oliver, Leeds Cycling Champion 

The panel will take place:

At:   5.30-7pm

This event is free and all are welcome.
