Active Travel

We want to help staff and students travel to the University actively – by walking, running and cycling where possible. Latest advice and information can be found on our new dedicated Active Travel page.


Travelling on two wheels is another healthy, fast and cheap way to get around Leeds and on campus we have lots of facilities on hand for people cycling to the university including secure parking, showers, bike hire and maintenance facilities.

The University of Leeds is now a GOLD accredited Bike Friendly Business!

Having achieved a silver award under the Bike Friendly Business accreditation in 2016, we are delighted to have now been upgraded to GOLD award following a recent re-appraisal of our facilities and initiatives on campus to promote cycling.

The University of Leeds has also been successful in gaining grant support from City Connect to extend our staff ‘Try-Cycling’ scheme fleet of electric bikes which enables more staff to try an electric bike for a one-off 1 month trial, for only £20! (£100 deposit is required in accordance with the Bike Hire Agreement). For more information on all of the Bike Hire options available at The Bike Hub please click here.
