Dr Bike is back for 2020

Bring your bike down to C Block Lawn every Wednesday afternoon from 12pm – 1.30pm, and get your bike serviced for free!

Dr Bike is a free cycle fix-it clinic available to both UC staff and students. This service provides basic cycle maintenance such as tuning brakes, oiling chains and puncture repairs.

You’ll find Tom and Sam on C Block Lawn every Wednesday from 12pm – 1.30pm during term time. Come past and say hi, and get your bike looked over while you’re there!

If you’re interested in seeing how Dr Bike fits into the bigger picture about planning for cyclists at UC, you might like to look at the UC Cycle Plan 2014-2022. And if you’re riding your bike to UC more often than not, you might be interested in our Bike Breakfast event later this month!

Keep an eye out for them on Wednesdays!

Can the students out-pedal the masters?

The Aotearoa Bike Challenge is officially underway!

Students: now is your time to hop on board with the Aotearoa Bike Challenge and help UC pedal our way to victory!

The Aotearoa Bike Challenge is a free, fun competition to see which organisation can get the most people to ride a bike during the month of February. Teams earn points for kms travelled, trips taken and for recruiting new riders.

UC Staff are already on the bandwagon, holding top spot in their size category so far… but the question is…. CAN THE STUDENTS OUTDO THE MASTERS? Join the UC Student Team here and let’s see who the ‘wheel’ champions are…

We’d love to see as many of you on your bikes as possible to kick of the New Year.  So what better way to get some motivation than a fun challenge? Plus, sweet prizes (like an e-bike and store vouchers) are fully up for grabs!

Remember, UC offers heaps of great services for cyclists, including the popular Dr Bike weekly fix-it clinic, our annual Bike Breakfast, new covered and uncovered bike stands, repair stations and more. For all the cycle services, events and facilities on campus, see UC Sustainability’s webpage.

See the Aotearoa Bike Challenge webpage for more information, and to register with the UC Student Team. Kua takoto te mānuka – The challenge has been set! Let’s go UC!
