Bike Buddying is open to all staff and students at University College London. It aims to bring together more experienced cyclists with less confident cyclists to offer support during the ride from home to campus/work. You are NOT expected to teach riding skills or to take responsibility for others.
Bike Buddies should:
- Have experience of cycling – specifically to and from campus/work.
- Have knowledge of possible routes.
- Be willing to support a less confident cyclist on their journey.
Once you sign up as a Bike Buddy, we will pass you the contact details of the cyclist near you requesting a buddy. You will then need to contact them via email and/or phone to arrange the next step. You are free to withdraw from Bike Buddying at any time. However we hope this will be an equally rewarding experience for the buddy and the ‘buddied’ – it really is just cycling with a new friend!
Thank you for your interest in bike buddying. We will be in contact as soon as we have found someone who wants a bike buddy and who lives near you or lives along your route into work/university.
The information that you provide on this form will be held by WalkRunCycle and will be kept confidential and will NOT be shared with any third parties.
