Cycling

Many students at Christ's choose to bring a bike to college, as cycling is a quick and convenient way to get around Cambridge (especially for students whose faculties are further away from college). Unfortunately, bike theft is quite common in Cambridge so all students are advised to invest in a good bike lock!

Christ's has both a large open-air bike rack in New Court (behind the Stevenson building), and a covered bike storage area in the College car park. There is also the opportunity for students to leave their bikes in College over the long and short vacations.

Cambridge University Cycling Club

Cambridge University Cycling Club hold training rides on Saturday and Sunday mornings during term time, and compete in BUCS competitions and the annual Varsity time trial against Oxford. The club also organises weekend mountain biking trips.

Flo, a current Christ's student who cycles with CUCC, says:

"You can cycle pretty much everywhere outside the city. It's great to get out of town and see the countryside - cycling with CUCC is good way to get to know different routes."
