Borrow a bike and bike equipment for free at libraries in Athens, Glouster, The Plains, Nelsonville, Chauncey, and Albany! Several ACPL locations are even near the Hockhocking Adena Bikeway. Our Chauncey location is located near the Bailey’s Trail System and offers youth mountain bikes for ages 8-12, and our Athens location offers a specially built accessible bike and Strider bikes.
