Bike Week 2018 – Campus Events from HarBUG

Join in with National Bike Week 2018. HarBUG has organised two campus events on Wednesday 13th June, open to anybody who cycles or would like to try cycling to work.

Campus Cycle to Work Day

We have a Campus Cycle to Work Day which is a great way to try cycling to work with one of our easy paced escorted rides to the campus from Didcot, Wantage or Grove, suitable for all fitness levels. Just turn up before the departure time detailed below:

  • Didcot Parkway, Brompton hire lockers – Depart 07:50
  • Wantage, Nelson Pub – Depart 07:45
  • Grove, Millbrook Square – Depart 07:30

If you already cycle to work, it is great event to meet other cyclists who commute to the campus.

There will be a free breakfast for cyclists, sponsored by Element 6, for any Campus staff who cycle to work on the Cycle to Work Day. Vegetarian option available. Breakfast will be served at the Harwell Pavilion, Thomson Entrance between 07:30 to 09:00.

Cycle Surgery

Mountain Mania from Didcot will be running a free cycle surgery from 08:30 to 12:30 in front of the Electron Building on Fermi Avenue.

If your cycle needs tuning up, adjustments or minor repairs then drop your cycle off and get it looked at for free.  Please see notes below for further details. Sponsored by Harwell Campus.

Notes for Cycle to Work Day:

  • If you are joining the escorted rides, please ensure your cycle is road worthy.
  • Cycle helmets are not mandatory on escorted rides but are recommended.
  • Ride leaders for the escorted rides will be wearing HarBUG fluorescent jackets.
  • We cannot connect the Didcot ride with trains from Oxford and Reading due to restrictions carrying cycles on some trains and timetable changes.
  • Free breakfasts will be available whilst stocks last.
  • Please contact if you have any questions.

Notes for Cycle Surgery:

  • Cycle Surgery works on a first come first served basis.
  • Labour is provided free any parts must be paid for by the cycle owner.
  • The Cycle Surgery is provided for basic adjustments, tuning or minor repairs to cycles only. We reserve the right to refuse any cycle if the work required will require too much time to complete. The amount of time available will depend on the number of cycles left for work and a judgement call from either Mountain Mania or a HarBUG representative, this will be be non-negotiable.
  • Cycles are left at the Cycle Surgery at the owner’s own risk.
  • Cycles must be collected before the finishing time of 12:30.
  • HarBUG is not responsible for any damage, loss or theft of any cycles using the Cycle Surgery.
