Dr. Bike FREE Bike Servicing

Dr. Bike is back for 2024!! 🚲🤸‍♀️ That’s FREE bike servicing for students and staff, once a week!

Find Dr. Bike every Thursday on C-Block Lawn, from 12:30-2pm, starting in O-Week (22nd Feb).

Here’s a nice photo of last year’s Dr. Bike (Jayden) chatting to this year’s Dr. Bike (Adam) at the 2023 Bike Breakfast. Adam repairs bikes for RAD Bikes so you know your bike will be in safe hands! 🔧

Aotearoa Bike Challenge Social Ride

The Aotearoa Bike Challenge officially kicks into gear on February 1st! Boost your wellbeing (and help us climb the leaderboard!) by joining fellow UC students and staff for a gentle lunch-hour ride to celebrate the start of the challenge. Don’t forget to log your ride on the Love to Ride website or via Strava so your kms count!

🚲 Meet out front of the University Bookshop (by the new Locky Dock Stand) at 12pm on February 1st 🚲

The ride will be a gentle meander along the Uni-Cycle, which will take us through the beautiful Riccarton Bush, around part of Hagley Park, and back to campus.

All levels of riders are welcome, but you must be able to safely ride a bike in order to participate. Helmets are required.

Don’t have a bike? Borrow one for free from the UCSA!

This is the first year students are able to participate in the challenge alongside staff! Last year UC came second in Ōtautahi Christchurch and third overall in Aotearoa for our size category 🌟 With your help we can aim even higher!

Looking forward to seeing you out there 🚲🚲🚲
