If you plan to keep a bicycle on site, you will need to register it with the College (either via the Porters’ Lodge or the Bursary) so that it is not removed from the premises and disposed of.
Bicycles racks are available in the area under the Dining Hall, in front of the Rayne Building or near the Old Granary/Study Centre. There is also a bicycle shed in the basement of the Old Granary. Bicycles left elsewhere on College grounds will be removed by the Maintenance team or Porters. Please do not take bicycles into the College gardens, or cycle in College grounds. If you are living in accommodation such as Newnham Terrace, which has bicycle racks in the front gardens, please use them. Bicycles must not be kept in your rooms or brought inside any College properties.
Please note that the College insurance does not cover bicycles. It is the responsibility of individual members to have them adequately insured. Since bicycle theft is common in Cambridge, it is advisable not only to mark them but also to buy – and use – a very strong lock. Take care – cycling in Cambridge can be dangerous. You are urged to wear a cycle helmet and other safety equipment (ie reflective belt or jacket), and to make sure your bike is in good repair, with functioning front and back lights. Cycling at night without lights is against the law and can incur a fine if you are stopped by the Police.
There are several bike shops in Cambridge and the DCSA will be happy to advise on where to purchase either a new or second-hand bike.
The use of skateboards, scooters or rollerblades is not permitted within College grounds.
