    Cambridge is famously bike-friendly. There are plenty of facilities for cyclists, including cycle parks, a hire shop at the railway station and countless cycle routes. The Cambridge Cycling Campaign has a comprehensive map of the city and a route planner.

    Both of our campuses have secure bicycle shelters on-site.
