Bike Loans


Borrow one of our bikes for free

We offer a free way for you to see if cycling is for you: We loan out both pedal bikes and electric bikes for free to the people of Rotherham for between one and three months.

When you borrow one of our bikes you are also given all the typical accessories you need including a helmet, bag, bike lock and lights. We maintain your loan bike for you as long as you have it, and also offer you free cycle training if you would like to improve your confidence and skills.

At the end of your loan period you just have to return the bike and accessories to us. 

Please note, due to an increase in the number of bikes stolen this year we will now be taking a deposit of £100 before loaning out electric bikes. The deposit will be returned in full on return of the bike, and has been brought about as a means to discourage theft which jeopardises the future of the scheme.
