A new scheme that provides bikes to local communities has launched across Greater Manchester, following a £145,000 (US$173,000) investment from Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM).

The bike libraries allow people to borrow a bike, with the aim of encouraging people to take advantage of the new cycling routes being delivered as part of the Bee Network across Greater Manchester. There are 14 bike libraries are currently in operation – in Bolton, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale and Stockport – with 13 more set to launch over the coming months. The libraries offer a range of different bikes, including bikes for adults and children, trikes and Bromptons – which were delivered in partnership with the Wheels for Heroes scheme.
