Children living in the Beeston, Hunslet and Holbeck areas of Leeds will be given the chance to get on their bikes for free.

A new bike library has opened its doors at the the One Stop Centre, on Dewsbury Road.

The scheme is sponsored by Yorkshire Bank and run in collaboration with Welcome to Yorkshire’s cycling initiative, Cycle Yorkshire.

It aims to give every child in Yorkshire access to a bike, and sees unwanted bikes donated at one of the county’s 46 donation stations, where they are then repaired and available to hire free of charge.
