Try Before You Bike

Try Before You Bike is a cycle scheme operated by Peddle My Wheels, which allows you to try out a new (or nearly new) bike for a small fee. If you then wish to buy the bike, you can do so for a reduced fee or via a payment plan.

If you are a postgraduate student at the College, who is currently required to be on campus during the national lockdown, Move may be able to support you with additional funding. If you're eligible, we will pay for the first two months of your rental, or up to a maximum of £80. 

How to apply

Firstly, you can learn more about Try Before You Bike on their website. If you'd like to apply for the additional funding from our team, you'll need to:

  1. Be a postgraduate student who is currently required to travel to campus during the national lockdown
  2. Follow our Instagram or Twitter accounts
  3. Join our Move Imperial club on Strava
  4. Email james.perry@imperial.ac.uk who will provide the next steps for your funding

The additional funding has limited availability and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. 


If you're a member of staff, you should apply for the Cycle to Work scheme.
