Bike Bank and Cycle Rides

Please note, the Bike Bank will be closed for a short holiday from Friday 21 June to Saturday 1 July 2017.

If this is going to cause anyone an inconvenience, please email John Rawlinson (via SSB contacts list)

The South Brent Bike Bank was established by SSB in 2015 as a community resource offering a free lease of a bike for up to 7 days and promoting sustainable transport in and around South Brent. The bikes are ideal for new riders as they are easy to use and well suited to Devon being light and with plenty of gears for those hills. Each lease includes helmet, gloves and lights to get you on the road as well as a support pack full of advice, tips for new cyclists, links to cycling organisations in the area and maps.

The Bike Bank is currently only open to adults of 18 and over.

To borrow a bike you must register on the scheme. To register:

  • Complete the registration on line
  • Or download and complete a document registration form (574 KB) and email it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • Or complete a paper registration form from the envelope on the SSB notice board in the lobby of the Old School Community Centre and place it in the envelope marked 'Completed registration forms'

Once you have registered, further instructions will be emailed to you and you will be able to choose and book out a bike from the green, secure cycle store at the Old School Community Centre.

More small group  bike rides are being planned during 2017 starting in (or with a joining point in, or near to) South Brent, led by Sustrans volunteers in partnership with Sustainable South Brent. There will be rides for less experienced cyclists including families with children and some more challenging rides for more experienced riders (anyone with an electric bike would also be welcome). The SSB Bike Bank cycles will be available for free loan, on a first come basis (see SSB link).
