McMaster students will stock libraries with bikes for kids to borrow


With spring around the corner, bicycling is picking up steam again in Hamilton.

And as the city’s bike share formally launches, another group is growing its own bike library aimed at children and youth.

McMaster geography students are working to place bicycles at libraries around the city that people can check out and ride. Unlike the new SoBi Hamilton bike share program, people younger than 16 years old are allowed to borrow these bikes, for free.

“How do you create a lifelong cyclist? You have to start young,” said Shiloh Covey, executive director of Start the Cycle. “And you have to provide bikes.”
