Cycle to Work Day – Wed. 23rd June

HarBUG are running a Campus Cycle to Work Day on Wednesday 23rd June. If you have thought about cycling to work join our easy paced group rides from Wantage or Didcot to the Campus. A free breakfast will be served at the Harwell Pavilion at the Thomson Avenue Entrance, sponsored by Harwell Campus.

This is the first Campus Cycle to Work Day since April 2019, so please come along whether you are working back at the campus or still working from home. It would be great to see Campus cyclists old and new at the beginning of this new era of work and hopefully with better commuting, by cycling to work, of course.

Not Going Back to Work Yet? – Get back in the saddle and check out the improvements to the Campus routes, a new route from Wantage and a traffic free Chilton Road at Upton from Didcot.

Hybrid Working? – Why not make your Campus working days cycle to work days?

Supercharge Your Commute! – Our main routes are mainly off-road through the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside giving a boost to your mental and physical health & wellbeing.

Go Electric! – Try out the new Campus electric bikes.

Just turn up at one of our Group rides, suitable for all fitness levels.

  • Didcot Parkway, Cycle Hub – Depart 07:50 
  • Wantage, Nelson Pub – Depart 07:45  

Breakfasts are served at the Harwell Pavilion, Thomson Entrance from 07:30 to 09:00.
