Borrow And Ride At The Bicycle Library

Inside a converted double-decker bus in London, people can browse, test, borrow and buy bicycles.

The Bicycle Library is a new concept that offers people the chance to borrow bicycles instead of books. Their base is a double-decker bus in London, where inside you can seek advice from the ‘Librarian,’ find information in their files and books, look around at the clothes and accessories on offer, and browse their selection of various bicycles.

You can try out the bicycles on a dedicated, covered test track, whatever the weather. Once you’ve made your choice, you can take that bike away for a few days. If you decide you’d like the bike permanently, you can buy it direct from the manufacturer.
