Our new system is up and running!
The UTS Housing Bike Club has now gone online with a new and streamlined process for borrowing bicycles. It’s now easier than ever to get on your bike! Want to know how? The video below contains everything you need to know about the new system.
Ready to go? Head to the booking system at utshousingbikeclub.uts.edu.au/utsh/book, and remember to bookmark the link for easy access.
Things to remember:
- NSW law requires every bicycle rider to wear a helmet at all times when riding.
- Cyclists must obey the road rules like all other vehicles.
- Where possible, bike lanes are a safer place to ride. There are also shared paths and dedicated cycleways can be used by pedestrians and bicycle riders.
- You should buy or borrow a bike lock to avoid theft, and a horn or bell to alert pedestrians and other riders.
- If you ride at night (or in hazardous weather), you’re legally required to display front and back lights as well as a reflector (see the specific requirements for ‘Lights and reflectors’ here).
- The law also requires your bike to have a working horn or bell and at least one working brake at all times.
- To find the best routes to ride along, check out this map produced by Sydney Cycleways.
So you’ve booked a bike, prepared all the right gear and know the rules. What now? Sydney Cycleways have created 11 themed routes with scenic stops and attractions along the way.
Here are three of our favourites:
nner-East Art ride
Parks and Gardens circuit
Note: bike availability will be rolled out in residences other than Yura Mudang progressively from the 28th of Feburary, 2017.
