Bike hire scheme
  • At the start of the bike hire 47 described
    themselves as starting to cycle again 81 of
    these now consider themselves experienced
    occasional or regular cyclists
  • 100 said they will continue to cycle in future
  • I think its a great opportunity to explore
    more of the city and keep active, especially
    during stressful exam times
  • Cheaper than bus pass! Helps maintain/improve
    fitness. Is useful for leisure activities, not
    just a means of getting to university
