October 2018 Uni bike rides

Join us for a bike ride every Wednesday afternoon from the 10th October!

Cycling is a cheap, healthy and green way to travel around Colchester.

Each ride will show you some mainly off road and quiet routes to useful local destinations. While on the rides we will point out useful information for students cycling in the UK for the first time, and cycling tips to build confidence and help you cycle more safely.

  • Town Centre – to access shopping, eating, services, night life and lovely green spaces,  heritage and the arts.
  • Off campus student accommodation so you know how to visit your friends by bike! (Including Meadows, University Quays, The Maltings,  Greenstead House,  Avon Way and Forest Road
  • Wivenhoe – as a great place to go locally for an evening or weekend out with good pubs, lovely eating places, art galleries, Wivenhoe Bike Kitchen and lots of interesting sustainability projects

The final ride ‘See Me’ will focus on cycling safely thought the winter months.
