Bike Library pilot launched at Lowestoft school

Suffolk County Council has launched a ‘Bike Library’ for year 5 and 6 pupils at Phoenix St. Peter Academy, Lowestoft as part of a pilot project to promote active travel.

The free loan bikes were secured using funding from Active Travel England’s Capability and Ambition Fund and support the county council’s ambition to look after residents’ health and wellbeing.

Following additional funding from ScottishPower Renewables, supporting partner of the Suffolk stage of the Tour of Britain, the pupils and their parents or carers will also be offered a Bikeability training course to give them the skills, confidence and understanding they need to take their bike on the road.

The course will also teach them the basics of bike maintenance, such as how to fix a puncture, and how to stay safe while cycling.

As part of the pilot, Rotary Club of Lowestoft East Point and Lowestoft Rising have contributed bike locks and helmets to go with the bikes.
