Bicycle Library at the Bethlehem Bicycle Cooperative

Faith Warren checks out her new Bicycle Library bike.

CAT Bicycle Library:  Now you can ride a road bike to work, use a mountain bike on the weekends and borrow a trailer to haul your groceries, all for $300 over the first year and just $150 a year thereafter.  You can even borrow a bike for a friend or relative for up to three days.  The Bike Library is designed to help someone using a bicycle for transportation to have affordable, reliable transportation.

Both the Smart Cycling: Traffic Skills 101 and Basic Mechanic classes are part of the deal for someone to use the Bicycle Library.

Training includes riding with a League of American Bicyclists certified Cycling Instructor on the recommended routes between your home and favorite destinations like your job, SteelStacks, your favorite trail or your family & friends’ homes.  Once both classes are completed to the satisfaction of the instructors you may use any bike in our library.  Take it home.  Come back when you have a problem or want to use a different bike or accessory.

The bicycles are serviced once a month in our shop called the Bethlehem Bicycle Cooperative (open Thursday evenings and Saturdays). Most participants come in more often because they know we provide solutions to keep your travel by bicycle safe and satisfying.  Maintenance is FREE.

The CAT Bicycle Library is a dream come true for those who truly want to use a bicycle for transportation.
If you or someone you know is seriously interested in using a bike to get around the first step is to visit our educational bike shop, called the Bethlehem Bicycle Cooperative on Thursdays 5-9PM or Saturdays 8AM – 4PM,    You can start the program with a 1-day pass for just $5!  For more information  call 610 954 5744 or email bikedirector@car-free.org.
