The annual bike library giveaway has started again. Kids bikes, adult bikes, all sizes are up for grabs. It is a bike of your choice that has been fully serviced and comes with a one year warrantee. Each week, the first 50 people to do the library's Win a bike survey will win a bike.
"Member or non-member, everyone benefits by winning a bike surplus to stocks. Get one for yourself, or to give to someone else, or get an early Christmas present. This eases the pressure of rising living costs. It also promotes cleaner air, and incidental exercise travelling by bike good for body and mind health. With the success of War on Waste, many people are loving using quality pre-loved goods." Dan Endicott, Co-ordinator of the Newcastle Push Bike Library said .
"The survey to complete is a 5 minute task, empowering you of learning road safety myths that 99% of people do not know about. (With full references to road rules) This knowledge leads to less stress for motorists, walkers, and cyclists." Dan said .
"When international students are headed back home, they return a pushbike they have borrowed for the year. The bike library stores some for next year, but we can't store them all." Dan said .
"Local active transport groups are being proactive with road safety education. The government has failed to implement systems to educate people on how to ease traffic congestion and travel safely. Be amazed at what myths have become engrained in bad driving/cycling habits. What better way to spend 5 minutes, then to get knowledge for a more stressless, happy commute, and you end up with a fully serviced with 1 year warrantee pre-loved pushbike?! Totally free with community love" Dan says.
