As the preferred vehicle leasing, contract hire and rental provider to Welcome to Yorkshire, Synergy is the 63rd bike donation station in the Yorkshire Bank Bike Libraries programme.

Due to the success of the campaign with Welcome to Yorkshire which saw almost 100 unwanted bicycles delivered to its Harrogate headquarters, we are going to continue collecting unused, unloved or outgrown adults and children’s bikes. The bikes will be checked and repaired, giving the chance for someone new to love your old bike, borrow it for free and boost their fitness levels.

The Yorkshire Bank Bike Libraries programme launched in 2014, the programme’s vision is to make cycling more accessible for all ages and all ability levels, enabling children and their families to borrow bikes for free.

Synergy MD, Paul Parkinson, said: “The bike libraries programme is inspirational, giving many participants a new lease of life. We’re thrilled to continue as a bike donation station after the incredible response of our initial campaign and look forward to our office storage space being filled to the rafters with even more bicycles!”   

Sir Gary said: “I think it’s fantastic what Synergy Automotive have done coming up with this scheme where people can donate their bikes here. Nearly 100 bikes have been donated here which will go towards the 5,500 which have been donated across Yorkshire already.”

Synergy welcomes bikes, including those in need of repair, from 9.00am-6.00pm at its Hornbeam Park Oval office in Harrogate.

Thank you!
