Cycling is the fastest way of getting round the city, and the William Gates Building hosts what has been described by the CambridgeCycling Campaign as the “highest quality cyclepark in the city”.

On-site cycle park

Bicycles can be parked under the huge white tents in front of William Gates Building. These tents are fully illuminated at night.

Due to the high numbers of bikes in the city, bike theft is common, so for your own security please ensure your bikes are locked.
The department takes no responsibility for any losses or damage to any bikes parked on site.

Secure parking at the train station

If you prefer to come to Cambridge by train, you can leave your bike in the indoors cycle park next to the station or rent a bike from the cycle park's bike shop.

Online interactive map

The Cambridge Cycling Campaign website provides an excellent interactive cycle route planner designed by Simon Nuttall. It is based on a high-quality route database that was specifically created for Cambridge cyclists and is maintained by experienced local cyclists. It tells you quite reliably the shortest, fastest or quietest cycling route from A to B anywhere in and around Cambridge. Try it, you may discover lots of surprising shortcuts and interesing routes!
