Staff can now organise their meetings at a specialised Spin Studio in the University's Sport and Recreation Centre, and cycle at varying intensities for the duration of the gathering.

Those who are able are encouraged to stand and cycle when speaking, to maximise their exercise.

The University said this sort of initiative was popular overseas, particularly in the corporate sector, where it not only got people active but helped build camaraderie between teams.
