Cycling Ambassador Bike days in July

25 June 2013

UCL is hosting two more cycling ambassador bike days in July.  The drop in sessions will run on

Wednesday 3rd and Friday 19th July from 11.30 until 15.30 in the South Quad.

During the drop-in events staff and students will be able to book individual cycle training sessions for a later date, and a mechanic will be available to undertake on-the-spot bike health checks.

Come along and get your free bike check-up and sign up for some free practical training.  Training sessions cover all levels of competency, including beginners.  

You will also be able to register for STravel (formerly Please Cycle Camden) and earn reward points for cycling, walking and running within the Borough of Camden.  Points can be exchanged for goodies and discounts at a range of suppliers including M&S, Dominos pizza, Go Ape as well as bike companies – or sign up now as Friend Team “UCL” at the link: https://camden.pleasecycle.com/login
