Residents and community groups in our area are being encouraged to apply for funding to set up their own Bike Library.

The scheme, which is sponsored by Yorkshire Bank and run in collaboration with Welcome to Yorkshire’s cycling initiative, Cycle Yorkshire, aims to give every child in Yorkshire access to a bike.

Unwanted bikes can be donated at one of the county's 46 donation stations, where they are then repaired and available to hire free of charge.

Since the launch of the first Bike Library last year, more than 20,000 chances to ride a bike have been offered to children and around 4,000 bikes have been donated.

Each bike library is different and all offer a range of activities, including short or long term loans, family rides, skills training or activity sessions.
