SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

A pop-up bicycle library to break down the barriers that prevent many people from cycling

A pop-up bicycle library in Tower Hamlets – London’s most deprived borough, has transformed an empty shop into a ‘cycle hub’ where children and adults living locally can borrow bikes for free. Chrisp Street Community Cycles also provides free cycle advice, free bike repairs and guided rides to help people build their confidence. 

The idea is to break down the barriers that prevent people from cycling in London, including access to equipment and concerns about safety. Those behind the project hope it will inspire similar initiatives elsewhere.
