Student loan bikes

New for 2017 / 2018! Only a limited number available!

Student Loan Bikes

We have brand new lightweight Raleigh hybrid bikes available to UEA and NUA students to hire for the academic year. Includes everything you need for trouble-free cycling:

  • two free services
  • free maintenance
  • puncture-resistant tyres
  • mudguards and luggage rack
  • a strong D lock
Step-through / women’s frame
Crossbar / men’s frame

 How does it work?

Your loan period will last for ten months, from September or October 2017, and during that period any maintenance required will be free (parts cost only). During the Christmas and Easter breaks you can leave the bike with us, and we will service it ready for your return, as well as keeping it in safe storage.

No more worrying about your bike not working, or getting stolen, or where to store it in the holidays.

How much does it cost?

The Student Loan Bikes are available for £220 plus a deposit of £30.

How do I book?

You can reserve online below.

The bicycle will be ready for collection a week after your reservation. When you come to collect it you need to bring: your student ID, card for payment and £30 deposit in cash (refundable at the end of your loan). You will need to complete a loan agreement while we make sure that the bike is set up correctly for you.

What about helmets?

We have a budget helmet and lights deal available for an additional £35 (for students taking loan bikes only). You can pick these up when you collect your bike, or browse through our choice of re-chargeable lights and premium helmets.  It is not a legal requirement to wear a helmet, but you must use front and rear lights on the road after dark.
