Extra-Ready for University of Reading Students
ReadyBike, Reading’s bike hire scheme, has a special offer for College and Uni students to help them get around Reading quickly and cheaply.
Casual membership for everyone is just £1 per hour. However students can pick up an annual membership to ReadyBike – which has over 200 bikes around town - for a special discounted rate of £35 (rather than standard price of £50).
That's 365 days of transport for little more than the price of a coffee once a month.
With many ReadyBike docking stations across town, with three docks at the University, one outside Reading College, and other docks in the shopping districts and the train station to name a few, it’s a quick, cheap and easy way to travel.
With an annual membership the first half-hour of every journey is free – so you can bike hop on and off as many times as you like. Simple when most trips around town can be made within 30 minutes.
You will need to add £5 of credit to your account, in case you go over the 30 minute free period. You can top up more for £1 an hour via the website or app.
