Buddies: Contact an UMBUG Buddy for advice, support or a guided cycle along safe routes to the Oxford Road Corridor.

Cycle Marking: The University offers a free overt bike marking service for all students and staff.

Subsidised Gold Standard Locks: Staff and students can purchase excellent quality subsidised bike locks for only £15 (RRP £40).

Biko Bikes: The Student Union runs a bike hire scheme whereby abandoned bicycles are donated by Security, refurbished and then hired out to students.

UMBUG Projects Team: A few UMBUG members meet once a month to discuss and plan UMBUG activities. If you want to get involved, email umbug@manchester.ac.uk.
