    I don't how to ride a bicycle :// so I'm wondering how popular and necessary cycling is in universities such as LSE, KCL, Bristol, York, Oxford and Bath. Are there any alternatives that people use instead of cycling? Is it possible to walk in some of these universities?

    If you don't know how to ride a bike, don't even consider cycling in London. And even if you did, don't.1

    Cycling is very popular in Oxford, but it is by no means necessary to have a bike. Everything is pretty much within walking distance as Oxford city centre is quite small - I didn't have a bike and had no problems.

    For London, I wouldn't recommend cycling - it can get very busy, and public transport is usually pretty good. For Oxford, having a bike can be useful but it's definitely not necessary. If your department is 'far' from your college, or you live out somewhere that's a bit further out, a bike would be a good idea but it's still not required.

    I'd still recommend learning to cycle though, it's a useful life skill.

    I couldn't ride at bicycle at 15, 16 ish. Bought one from halfords and learned on the way home. It really isn't hard. Even if you don't need a bicycle, you should get one anyway but they are very useful.

    Oxford: not necessary, but useful if your college is further out e.g. St Hugh's. Potentially if you are living out too, though that won't be first year so you'll have time to decide for yourself.
