The College has refurbished a number of bicycles in College livery (either donated, or acquired) which are available for the use of Lucy Cavendish College students, staff and Fellows. These bicycles are for short-term or emergency usage only and should not be considered as a replacement for owning your own bicycle should you need one. There is no charge for their use, but they must be secured with the 'D' lock and key (provided by the College) whenever they are left. The College can also provide lights (now a legal requirement for all cyclists) if needed, for night or evening use.
Call in to the Porter's Lodge at the front of College for details about how to hire them out, and please cycle responsibly - you are representing the College whilst riding a college-liveried bicycle.
For those of you bringing your own bicycles to College, we have a fully covered bicycle rack on the immediate right as you enter college, where these can be stored. The University requires student bicycles to be numbered and the number to be displayed on the bicycle. The Porter's Lodge will allocate a number on request; please be sure to ask for this as soon as you have a bicycle in Cambridge.
NB: The College conducts a "bicycle cull" annually with 2 weeks' notice given - any bicycle not marked in advance will be removed and disposed of.
Cambridge is a notorious target for bicycle thieves, so it is important that bicycles are locked up with a strong lock and chain. Cambridgeshire County Council runs an Adult Cycle Training scheme, details of which can be found online, along with cycle maps and suggested routes.
