Annual Cleaning of Bike Shelters

On Monday 7th June 2021, the large polycarbonate bike shelters on Canterbury campus are being cleaned. Therefore, there may be restricted access to some of the bike shelters whilst the cleaning is taking place.

Bike hire dates for the summer term

Hire a bike for the term from the Cycle Hub Wednesday 9 May and Friday 11 May, 9.00-16.00.

Each bike has been security tagged and is registered to the University of Kent. They all come equipped with lights, a bell and a lock and have received a full service – they are as good as new and are ready to ride!

The cost to hire one of the recycled bikes is £30 for the term, £20 for the shorter summer term.  You need to leave a security deposit of £50-£100 depending on the value of the bike you hire. This will be refunded when you return the bike in good condition. To help, we ask that you pop into the Cycle Hub and see Dr Bike at least once each term for a service.
