Bike hire scheme

Harper Adams runs a bike hire scheme for all students:

How long can I hire a bike for?

Bikes may be hired for a minimum of one week to a maximum of one term. It may be possible to further extend the loan period but this must be checked with Student Services to ensure the bike is still available.

How much does it cost?

Bikes are free to hire but you will need to provide a £50 deposit which will be refunded on return of the bike and accessories in a good clean condition.

What do I get with the bike?

As well as a Giant CRS 4.0 bike (or similar) you will be provided with:

  • a cycle helmet
  • padlock
  • lights
  • key for a storage locker (if required)
What about bike security?

Bikes must be kept padlocked whenever they are not in use. The bike must only be used by the person hiring. If it is lost or stolen this must be reported immediately to either the Student Services Administrator (01952 815396) or University Security (07980 061128) after 5pm.

Where do I return the bike?

Bikes must be returned in full working order and clean at the end of the loan period. They must be checked by a porter who can be contacted on 01952 815321 or for a time to be arranged. The bike should then be returned to the Cycle Rack. The padlock key, helmet and bike check form should be returned to Jane Austin in Student Services.

Cycle safety

A cycle safety booklet will be made available on request.


Jane Austin will take you through the procedure of hiring a bike. Make sure you take your Student ID card. You will be a need to read and comply with the full terms and conditions.
