Cycle Friendly Places accreditation success

Article from Kent Hospitality

Kent’s Commercial Services team were pleased to receive accreditation from Cycling UK last week designating our guest accommodation as cycle friendly for tourists. The accreditation recognises measures such as secure cycle shelters, areas for washing and drying clothes, flexible catering options, available repair kits and cycle hire information that have been put in place to facilitate individual and group guests on cycling holidays/visits.

The Conferences and Events team are used to welcoming B&B guests and groups into the 4*- 5* Visit England graded campus accommodation every spring and summer for holidays, and Event Co-Ordinator Rachel Walmesley said:

“We are very excited to have achieved this accreditation. We already have some regular cycling groups that stay every year in Turing College which is predominantly our cyclist friendly accommodation. We hope that this accreditation along with our existing offer of free sports access to all B&B guests will encourage more cycling individual and group guests from within the UK and overseas.”

Whilst Kent Sport’s Cycle Hub may be temporarily closed, there’s alternative cycle stores in Canterbury so as long as you’re not two-tired (sorry for the pun!) there is no reason not to enjoy one of the many cycle routes located on the doorstep of campus this summer.

The University of Kent’s Cycle Friendly Places accommodation accreditation will be valid until June 2023. To find out more about our holiday accommodation for individuals and groups visit: www.kent.ac.uk/conferences-and-events/holidays
