Staff Bike Hire Scheme has now launched. Until now the Sustainability Service have run the ‘try cycling’ bike hire for 5 weeks for staff but will now be offering staff bike hires through the campus bike hub at cost of just £10 per month + £100 deposit in a similar scheme to student bike hires running for longer periods of time. The bike hub have a mixed fleet of brand new hire bikes available for hire including 4 Bromptons (folding commuter bikes), 2 electric bikes and 10 hybrid bikes. This scheme may be of particular interest if you aren’t eligible for the cycle to work scheme and would still like access to a bike to get to and from work. If you are a member of University of Leeds staff and would like to register your interest for this new scheme please contact Romain Cames, Sustainability Service at email@example.com or 0113 34 39179.
The University of Leeds is now a Bike Friendly Business! The University of Leeds are now officially a City Connect Silver Accredited Bike Friendly Business! We were the highest scoring bike friendly business in the West Yorkshire region due to things like our campus bike hub, excellent bike parking facilities, cycle to work scheme, staff access to hire bikes and dedicated contacts for cycling in Sustainability Service.
