Cycling on University business

Cycling mileage allowance
20p/mile for official business journeys by bicycle, subject to certification from the relevant head of department/section that this is a reasonably efficient form of transport in the circumstances. This applies only to off-campus journeys.
Longer journeys
Cycling is the most convenient way to travel across town to the railway station (about 2 miles from centre of campus). There is currently a need for more secure cycle parking for overnight use at the station, but it is hoped that this will soon be addressed.

For journeys where a cycle would be useful at the other end, cycles can be carried on most trains. Advance reservations, sometimes with a booking fee, are necessary on some lines, and space may be restrcted, especially at peak periods. Details are available for each of the Train Operating Companies.
