FITNESS & TRANSPORT: Bike Libraries

One of the causes being promoted durning last week’s visit of the Tour de Yorkshire to Calderdale was “bike Libraries”!

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 for loan to children and families. 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 guided ride in the local community, a basic bike skills or maintenance course or simply just to give the freedom to ride on a safe route with family and friends.
