Top Reasons to Cycle to QMU

Get fit

On average, those who cycle live two years longer than those who don't, and are as healthy as an average person 10 years younger. Cycling helps raise your metabolic rate and burn calories, and if you commute by bike or by foot, exercise is built into your daily routine!

Save money

Unlike a car, a bike doesn't require road tax, an MOT, or breakdown cover. Plus, there aren't any fuel bills and parking is free! 

Get there early

Cycling in cities can be twice as quick as driving, as your journey time usually won't be affected by heavy traffic.


Cycling can be a great way to relieve energy built up by stress and anxiety, particularly after a long day of work!

Be social

Cycling with others is sociable and fun. Get fit and meet lots of interesting people along the way!

Help save the planet

By choosing to actively travel, and to leave the car at home, you are helping the environment, easing congestion, and becoming the change that is necessary to combat climate change.
