Cycle to Work Day
As an organisation, we’re supporting Cycle to Work Day on Thursday 3rd September as part of our health and wellbeing at work programme. So dust off your bike, don your helmet and schedule some ride-time in your diary!
If your bike is in reasonable nick but needs some a little love you can take advantage of the free bike check. If you need a bike before you'll be ready to roll, check out Cyclescheme. You'll be able to save at least 25% on a bike and any gear you need http://www.aber.ac.uk/en/supporting-staff/lifestyle/support-with-lifestyle/cyclescheme/
What’s happening on the 3rd at Aberystwyth University?
- Have a free shower at the University Sports Centre after your ride to work
- Enjoy a free drink at any of the University cafes (just show your cycle helmet as proof that you have cycled in!)
- Visit the promotional stalls at Penbryn reception between 12-2pm and see what cycling facilities are available locally and at the University
