Bury Bike Library
What is a 'bike library'?
Bike libraries are local hubs that will allow people to borrow a bicycle, like a book, to try out. They aim to boost access to cycling and take advantage of developing infrastructure, offering communities the chance to kick-start their own sustainable ‘bike library’.
Bike libraries are generally based in the heart of a community, within easy reach by foot, in places such as community centres, schools, village halls or local business premises. Our bike libraries support similar schemes that are live in Greater Manchester and help create locally sustainable models where bikes are donated, fixed up and used.
Bike libraries do accept donations of bikes. If you have a bike, you no longer use and would like to donate then please contact your local bike library to discuss arranging this.
How it Works?
Bikes can be loaned out from Bury Library at the below opening times (please see below Times & Dates section).
Bikes are free of charge and all members of the public need to do is create a Library Membership Card (which requires some address ID) and fill in some short agreement forms. Bikes are loaned out in weeklong periods; however, you can return your bike earlier if the Bike Library Hub is open (open times are below).
Bike Library Hubs will provide users with a lock, however members of the public most have their own bike helmet, is they wish to use it.
