Bicycle parking is available on campus - please see the Lancaster campus map for details.
Anyone using the bicycle parking must ensure that they lock their bicycle securely to the racks. The university does not accept liability for any property that is lost, stolen or damaged on campus.
Bike rental for staff and students
We’ve got bikes available for rent to our staff and students.
They go for only £50 (inc VAT) for any period as long as you hand them back by the end of June.
All the bikes come with a lock (minimum ‘Sold Secure Bronze’) and a set of front and back lights. We don’t supply helmets but recommend that you do use one.
Please make sure that you insure and look after the bike while you’ve got it: we expect to get it back in a good condition (when you receive your bike it will be either new or will have been serviced).
To request a bike, talk to the your Accommodation Officer - we have a range of frame sizes so hopefully we’ll have a bike to fit you.
Our bikes are all Trek FX7.0, fitted with mudguards.

Join the University of Cumbria Strava club
Do you bike, run or walk to work or study at the University of Cumbria?
Then join the University of Cumbria Strava Club!
Strava is a social media site that allows cyclists and other outdoorsy people to use GPS data to share routes and compare their performance.
If you’ve got a GPS device or a smartphone you can log your activities and upload them to the site. You’ll then be able to find out what other students and staff have been up to – helping you to pick up new route ideas and meet new people with similar interests. The site will also help you meet other people who ride the same commutes as you on a regular basis.

Please note: We strongly advise that Strava members use the site’s ‘Privacy Zone’ function to keep their home address hidden.
