To secure your bike properly consider investing in a D-lock instead of a cable lock. 


There is a bike repair stand located at the south end of Torrington Square (next to the steps) - installed by SOAS Students Union. This is free to use by all Bloomsbury college students, staff, and visitors. 

SOAS Bike Fixing Society also run regular maintenance sessions available to students and staff. Check our events listings on the main page for more information.    

Cycle Routes 

Take a look at Transport for London's Routes and Maps webpage to see some of the convenient Superhighways and Quietways (namely Quietway 1 North) in proximity to the Bloomsbury campuses. 

Apps such as Citymapper can also recommend quieter routes that will get you to your destination.
