UCT owns 200 mountain bikes and leases them to both staff and students. Recently ownership of these bicycles has transferred from UCT Properties and Services to GCI. In 2018 GCI hopes to relaunch the rental of bikes, with lowered prices. Watch this space for updates.

GCI will also be leasing a few bikes per residence, so that the GCI res rep can arrange for those res students to rent the bike over the short term. The Bikelink and GCI Residence coordinators are currently ironing out logistical issues, once that is finalised, we hope the bikes will be accessible for more students.

If anyone would like to help out and are passionate about bicycling, please contact the Bikelink coordinator.
