About UCycle

UCycle is a community for students interested in bicycling. Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or thinking about riding your bike to campus for the first time, we want to connect with you.

There are many reasons to consider riding a bike this fall – it’s fun, cheap, environmentally friendly and a great way to incorporate exercise into your day. This fall, students at participating campuses can also join UCycle to enhance your cycling experience with prizes, tips, discounts and more!

Participating campuses include: Lakeahead University, University of Windsor, Western University, University of Waterloo, McMaster University, Sheridan College, Trent University and Queen’s University.

Visiting our webpage is a great start! We’ve got videos, cycling news and discounts that student cyclists can receive from local businesses. UCycle also offers opportunities for you to win exciting prizes, including $50 gift certificates at local restaurants, VIA rail travel vouchers, a new bike (prizes vary by campus) and $500 for your school to put towards a cycling project of its choice. Participate in our Online Contest and Transportation Survey for your chance to win.

And that’s not all!

We’ll be organizing cycling events on campus throughout the fall. Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook to keep up to date on the tours, bike maintenance workshops and other events happening near you.

Grab your bike and tell your friends – UCycle is in town!
