Oxford Bike Week runs from 8-16 June. It aims to celebrate the benefits of cycling and encourage more people to take to two wheels and do their bit to reduce traffic and pollution while also keeping fit and having fun.
To mark the occasion, the University’s Environmental Sustainability Team are offering staff who bike to work a free breakfast (a bacon or mushroom bap and a cup of tea or coffee) at the following cafes, between 8am and 9.30am.
Thursday 13 June – University Club
Friday 14 June – Old Road Campus café
You can sign up for a breakfast through Eventbrite here:
On Tuesday 11 June there will also be pop-up events to promote e-bikes, which are being organised in collaboration with the Sustainable Travel team at Oxford Brookes University. Between 8am and 12.30pm the bikes will be at the Lloyd Building at Brookes, and from 1pm to 6pm they will move to the Old Road Campus. These are public events, but staff from both universities are very welcome to attend too. They are an opportunity to find out more about e-bikes and even try riding one.
E-bikes are like normal cycles but offer power assistance when needed, making even the steepest hills easy to tackle. This makes them ideal for people who regularly need to get to the University’s Headington sites but don’t quite feel up to the long slog up Headington Hill. Come along and have a go!
