The UK’s Telegraph published a great gallery of their top 10 most bike-friendly universities. We thought we would conclude this week’s blog posts with a selection of three of our favourites (of the top ten) below.
At No. 10: Oxford University (image in heading above) offers 2,900 bike spaces dotted around what is the UK’s oldest university.
At No. 8: University of York has 3,081 spaces for its 10,000 students. The university has a ‘Bike Doctor’ to ensure students’ bikes receive routine maintenance checks free of charge and free bike hire for up to 48 hours when travelling between King’s Manor and the Heslington Campus.
At No. 1: Biking is big business in Cambridge and for the 12,000 or so students there are 6,200 bike spaces dotted around what is the UK’s second oldest university. Bike theft is Cambridge’s biggest crime with nearly 3,000 stolen from the city centre last year. Buying a decent lock, however, shouldn’t be a problem with more than 20 bike shops in the town to choose from.
