We're celebrating spring and all things cycling, with our first ever Bike Fest! 

Come on down to C Block Lawn on the first day of October to meet other cyclists at UC, plus:


  • enjoy a FREE sausage sizzle (vege options available too!)

  • on-the-spot bike repairs thanks to Dr Bike, plus DIY workshop sessions with our student cycling club, UC Bike

  • enjoy a pedal powered smoothie made with the famous smoothie bike

  • learn more about BUG, our cycling community on campus, and how you can join

  • check out the new CCC cycle maps and routes

  • pick up your Biketober Christchurch Passport and calendar, for even more cycling activities in Christchurch during the month of October 

  • plus competitions, prizes and more! 

Not a confident cyclist (yet), but want to be? We're also lucky to have Connie from Go Cycle Christchurch along offering sign ups to some cycle skills sessions, which she will be running on campus on Friday 5th October. See our separate Facebook event for more details on these skills sessions (coming soon). 

Who knows, you might meet a bike buddy who shares your daily commute!

Keep peddling, and we'll see you there!
