Travel by bicycle
Cambridge is often known as the ‘city of cycling’ as many of its residents choose to cycle around the city. If you are studying for a short amount of time, you can easily hire a bike from Rutland Cycling.
However, if your are staying for a long course, it may be cheaper to purchase a bike, either second hand or brand new from shops like: Rutland Cycling, Cycle King, and Giant Cambridge. Just remember to always remember to wear a helmet and a good quality lock, and never buy second-hand until you have seen the bike.
