Access to Members’ Cycling Book Library
Campaign members also have access to the Campaign’s library of physical cycling related books and resources. These books have been donated by members and are available for loan by other members:
If you wish to borrow a book, please email the librarian. Book exchanges can take place at our monthly meetings at Bowling Green Court or books can often be delivered through your letter box depending on where you live. There is a good mix of travel, adventure, humour, technical and biographies in the collection. Whilst the titles aren’t necessarily the latest publications, we hope that there is something to tempt you.
