Bike Factory

Cycling is the cheapest and quickest way for most people to get around at NTU, especially if you make the most of our bike hire scheme.

  • 200+ bikes available for hire to staff and students.
  • 300+ spaces in secure compounds for cycle storage.
  • Changing rooms and locker facilities.
  • Our own workshop with expert mechanics and advice available.
  • Free maps and training.
  • Cycle to work scheme to help staff buy new bikes.
  • Sometimes we even arrange for cyclists to have free breakfasts! 

Bike Factory is part of a thriving cycling movement in Nottingham. Together with Nottingham City Council, The Big Wheel and Sustrans, we're aiming to ensure that NTU and Nottingham as a whole become more cycle friendly, as part of our sustainable transport plan.
