The road to an active and healthy student body

Sponsored: It's easier, cheaper and healthier to get around by bike, so why not make sure your campus is equipped to keep everyone pedalling?

Cycling has been growing in popularity in the UK over the past few years with over two million people riding bikes at least once a week – that’s 100,000 more than in 2012.

We know that the same can be said for universities. An increasing number of students and staff are more likely to be saddling up and taking more journeys by bike as the weather continues to improve.

A recent NUS study (June 2017) that investigated student attitudes towards cycling found that a key barrier was not having safe places to lock their bikes, as well other facilities that would encourage this healthier mode of transport.

Cyclehoop are continually working towards making cycling safer, more secure and convenient by breaking down the barriers to people cycling. Its award-winning cycle parking and infrastructure solutions help its customers in the education sector get the most out of the space available to ensure their students and staff have the proper facilities for their active commute.

In 2015, Cyclehoop delivered its largest-ever installation of two-tier cycle parking in the UK at the prestigious Cambridge University. It worked with principal contractor Morgan Sindall to install 678 two-tier bicycle racks providing effective and secure cycle parking for over 150 departments, faculties, schools, syndicates and other institutions.

Most recently, it delivered Finsbury Park Cycle Park on behalf of Transport for London. This included two-tier cycle parking for 150 bikes as well as cycle parking for non-standard cycles. Cyclehoop also installed its Deluxe Repair Station and Compact Bike Pump on the site, giving cyclists the peace of mind that they can make quick repairs while on the go.
