Dr Bike is back for Term Two

Get your bike ready to roll into Term Two with us!

Bring your bike down to C Block Lawn every Monday afternoon from 2pm – 3.30pm, and Dr Bike will service it 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 Kieran and Rory on C Block Lawn every Monday from 2pm – 3.30pm during term time. Come past, 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.

Keep an eye out for these guys on Mondays!

Want more zero waste living inspiration?

This is one of three zero waste presentations and workshops we’re delivering on campus.

We are hosting two other sessions with The Rubbish Trip, the first on Monday 25 March and the second on Tuesday 26 March. Both will run from 12pm – 2pm in Undercroft 101.

These are longer workshops, and are open for both staff and students. If you’d like more information on the Monday and Tuesday workshops, see the Facebook events here and here.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
