Hiring a bike

If you're staying with us for a short amount of time, you can easily hire a bike from Rutland Cycling.

Buying a bike

If you're here for a long course, it may be cheaper to purchase a bike:

  • Second-hand: You can find second-hand bikes for sale in local newspapers, such as the Cambridge News, or on websites such as Gumtree. Please be careful and make sure to see the bike before you agree to purchase it.
  • New: There are lots of bike shops in Cambridge, including: Rutland Cycling, Cycle King and Giant Cambridge.

Remember to also purchase a helmet and a good quality lock.

Staying safe when cycling

Remember:

  • we drive on the left-hand side of the road
  • use cycle routes wherever possible
  • always wear a cycle helmet (it's not a legal requirement, but we highly recommend you wear a helmet)
  • take special care at roundabouts, road junctions and where cycle routes join a main road
  • watch out for other vehicles turning in front of you, especially large vehicles such as lorries and buses
  • always cycle in single file - one cyclist behind another
  • make sure the lights on your bicycle work and use them when it is dark – you can be fined by the Police if you do not do this!
  • if you think crossing the road is dangerous, get off your bicycle and push it across – always use the pedestrian crossing outside Bell to walk across
  • lock your bicycle and do not leave it at School overnight.
