About us

Who are we?

West Lothian Bike Library is a not for profit, community interest company.

We help people to get active and connected through cycling and associated activity. We aim to tackle inequalities in health by making cycling an activity for all, regardless of background, income or ability. 

Our projects and activities aim to improve health and increase independence, confidence, employability and skills. Where cost is a barrier to cycling, we donate and/or loan free of charge recycled bikes to those in need.

We offer low cost servicing and repairs plus sales of preloved bikes meaning more people can afford to own a bike and keep it on the road.

A large proportion of the bikes we restore are donated on to those in need.

Other qualified instructors also deliver :

  • Bikeability Scotland Training
  • Adult Cycler Training
  • Family Cycle Training

Our qualified mechanics offer :

  • Free bike safety checks
  • Dr Bike Sessions
  • Maintenance Advice
  • Low cost servicing and repairs.

Our Smoothie Bikes are a firm favourite with Primary Schools and are loaned free of charge.

Find out more about our services here. We accept donated bikes in all conditions and for all ages (including balance bikes). From time to time we have affordable cycling / outdoor clothing for sale (children and adult sizes), donated from the West Lothian Financial Inclusion Network.

If you would like to donate a bike or make use of any of our services, please contact us for further information.
