Travelling by bicycle

‌Students who attend the university are encouraged to use bikes to travel around campus, thereby saving money on public transport and living a healthier lifestyle.

For information on bike maintenance and rental, for events related to bikes in St Andrews and to get involved with our cycling community

There is also information on some of the main organisations working to improve and promote cycling in Scotland

See the Sustrans interactive cycle map for more information on where you can securely store your bike in St Andrews.


Bikeworks, Glenrothes

A popular and cheap route to bike ownership is through the second hand bike sales organised by the University Environment Team in partnership with a local social enterprise, Bikeworks.

Bikeworks are the experts in bike restoration, refurbishment and remanufacture and have been working in partnership with Resource Efficient Solutions (A Fife Council Company), The University of St Andrews, Police Scotland and NHS Fife since 2008.
