More Cycle Parking across UC – April 2015

Leave a comment

Many of you will have seen that bike stand availability is continuing to be a moving feast in 2015, just as it has over the last few years.

We are really happy with the new bike stands along the hoarding on Science Lawn, and also the major new bike parking facility behind the Matariki Building. Have you found this one yet? For people wanting to park near the James Hight/Puaka Library, this is a great option as there are well over 100 bike parks there.

We’ve received a lot of feedback that the cycle parking at Dovedale has not been adequate and we have got some new bike stands over there. Let us know if you are having trouble finding a place to park your bike and we will see what we can do to help. Email

Oh and in case10376136_10152741986237336_2907484890138471244_n you missed it: Our fabulous Dr Bike Mechanics are back on deck! Funded by the UC Sustainability Office, they can help with basic repairs such as checking brakes, fixing punctures and oiling chains. AT NO COST TO YOU! They will be available on Wednesdays during term time only from 12-1 on C Block Lawn.
