Our bike-loan scheme

The club runs a bike-loan scheme which is designed to help children try out cycling on a reasonable bike. We know good bikes can be expensive, with kids outgrowing things really quickly, and it’s a big investment to buy a racing or mountain bike without knowing if your child will want to take up racing or mountain-biking.

We’ve purchased a number of bikes designed to bridge that gap and offer them for a year’s loan for between £40 and £50 pa.  The key requirements for the scheme are that you are a paid-up member of the club and take responsibility for the costs of wear and tear for the bike if it is stolen.

We are always looking out for good-quality second-hand bikes and are happy to pay the market rate so please think of us and get in touch if you are wanting to sell on.
