On yer bike!

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Nicola Paine @ 5:46 am

Now the weather is getting better, you may want to consider cycling to work.   Here are a few things to take into account:

  • Cycle racks are at each of the campus buildings in Southend (don’t forget to lock them up).
  • There are shower facilities around campus (ground floor in Gateway, actors’ dressing room in Clifftown and disabled WC and shower at The Forum).
  • You can claim 20p per mile expenses if you travel by bike for work purposes.  If you travel between Southend and Colchester or Loughton by bike – we salute you!
  • Not got a bike?  The University’s Cyclescheme can help with the cost of a new bike.  Visit https://www.essex.ac.uk/staff/travel-and-transport/staff-cycle-purchase-discount-scheme.
  • The SU in Southend also has some bikes you can hire.  Contact the SU for more info.
