Bike maintenance stand & pump for Southampton University: To fund public bike facilities for students, staff and the local community

iCrowdNewswire - Sep 24, 2015

Bike maintenance stand & pump for Southampton University

Our Project

We are raising funds to install a bike maintenance stand with tools and public pump at the University of Southampton’s Highfield campus to encourage staff, fellow students and other members of the public to maintain their bikes with convenient place on campus to do so. 

The Southampton University Road Cycling CLUB 

We are Southampton University Road Cycling Club and we are here to cater for all your cycling needs. 

We are not just a club, we are a community, bought together by a passion for cycling and ready to have fun, get fit and make friends. 

A healthy bike for all

1 in 10 people from Southampton University regularly cycles to the university for work or study. 

The project will be a direct benefit to the 3000 staff and students that cycle to university, with a larger potential reach to residents of the Highfield area, Bassett and Portswood areas of Southampton. 

The project will also enhance the Student Union Ethics and Environment activities by increasing awareness of sustainability through campaigning that will take place as part of this project. 

Where will the money go?

Take a look for yourself! The University’s National Oceanography Centre already a bike stand and public pump (pictured below) and we’re aiming to raise enough money to fund the same for Highfield campus!
