Hack of the week

"You can hire a uni bike for £50 for the WHOLE year!! If you live in the city centre (as I did) and have to travel up the Headingley Campus most days of the week, it only takes 10-15mins to cycle up to campus compared to the 45 minute uni bus that goes past every city accommodation! This means you can have more time in bed, save more money and get free bike help at Headingley Campus when you get there!"

-Evangeline Brailsford, MSc Physical Activity & Health
