The North Ridgeville Branch Library has started the bike share program! The bike share is made possible by the Heart and Sole Collaborative, coordinated through Lorain County Public Health and powered by the United Way of Greater Lorain County, in partnership with the Lorain Public Library System.
Beginning today, the North Ridgeville Branch Library has two Adult Electra Townies 7D available for check out with an LPLS library card. Adults can check out a bike for a day to enjoy a scenic ride. Townies are recreational ride-around-town bikes that are ideal for paved paths. The Library has both a step-over bike in nickel and a step-through bike in palm green. A step-through frame (also known as open frame or low-step frame) is a type of bicycle frame with a low or absent top tube or cross-bar. It can accommodate a variety of height levels. In addition to the adult bicycles, the North Ridgeville Branch Library will also circulate adult bike helmets, bike locks, and bike lights. They bikes will circulate during warmer weather months. This year, we hope to circulate them through September and early to mid-October weather permitting.
Adults, 18 and over, will need a valid library card and photo ID to check out a bike.
