What is a Bike Library?
The concept of a Bike Library is simple - a location or mobile unit with a fleet of bikes which are available to loan by children and adults alike. These bikes can be used to partake in a range of activities to promote healthy living, social inclusion and to have fun! Activities may be as specific as a basic bike maintenance course or simply just give the freedom to ride on a safe route with family and friends.
Yorkshire Bank Bike Libraries in association with Cycle Yorkshire have an ambition to create and support a network of small, local bike libraries, providing them with free bikes to get started along with ongoing advice, support and profile, as well as to help develop existing bike libraries and similar social enterprises.- See more at: http://bikelibraries.yorkshire.com/faq#sthash.UBm0OSxA.dpuf
The 'Bingley Bike Library' will offer:
- Loans of bikes to children in schools who are doing their Bikeability training
- Loans of bikes to individuals
- 'Dr Bike' sessions in schools and at our cycle in the park events to give your bike an MOT
- Maintenance sessions so you can learn the basics
- Recycle bikes donated to the library for others to use
