Start the Cycle provides a transportation solution for all by creating Bike Libraries
through your local community hub - checking out a bike can be as easy as checking out a book.
Build Your Own
Bike Libraries are a simple solution to provide your community with active transportation options. Build it on your own or let Start the Cycle help build it with you.
How it Works
Borrow a bike like a book through a Bike Library. Check one out from your local community hub and explore your community.
Thereâs a reason bike shares are popping up all over - they have transformed how citizens think about personal mobility. Communities with bike shares are not only more ecologically responsible; theyâre also more vibrant and energetic. Start the Cycle wants to help you innovate your community. Together, we can provide convenient access to bikes for transportation or recreation. The best part, borrowing a bike is free. Our system is easy to set up, low maintenance, and runs right out of any local community hub.217-727-4709
