Click to expandBike Library: Borrow a bike for free

This site operates a Bike Library Service. The Bike Library allows you to borrow a bike for free over an agreed period. All you need to do is sign up as a library member (if you aren’t already) and have a short induction. There are adult and children’s bikes available both male and female. You can reserve and collect a bike/s onsite by asking a member of staff, or book in advance online.

Our new Bike Library scheme has an ambition to give every child in our city access to a bike. The scheme (alongside others such as the Cycle Superhighway, and the Tour De Yorkshire) is part of the City’s cycle legacy post Tour de France.​
