ByCycle is all about making everyday riding as easy and fun as possible.
I've done a fair few two wheeled activities over the years: road cycling, mountain biking, touring, even bike polo. But actually, the people making a difference are you guys cruising your way to work, popping to the shops or out for a jaunt to the seaside.
So that's our focus.
It doesn't matter how cranky your ride or how fast you ride it—if you're powered by pedals we can help!
We've developed a great relationship with the University of Kent and the lovely staff and students. It's still early days but thanks to Kent Sport we have access to warm, well-equipped workshop facilities at the Cycle Hub.
We work there every Wednesday during term time, offering free bike checks and adjustments.
If your bike needs a bit more TLC, show your student or staff card for a great service price of £30—and we always do more than we need to!
The plan is to have cycle events on campus in the near future and we work closely with Estates Transport to improve the facilities and support regular cycling.
We make sure your bike runs smoothly throughout the term. Just bring it in to the Cycle Hub on any Wednesday for regular check ups!
We have a wide selection of bikes so you are sure to find one you love, but it's first come first served each term so you have to be quick...
We provide each bike with a ByCycle sticker, so it is easily identifiable and our contact info is easy to find. All hires include a strong lock and lights!
Our aim is to be a focus for the cycling community on campus. We're always at the end of a text message or an email about your bike queries. Or just come and have a chat!
