Research into Yorkshire Bank Bike Libraries

 

In late 2016, Sheffield Hallam University Sport Industry Research Centre was commissioned to undertake an independent evaluation of the Yorkshire Bank Bike Libraries programme (YBBL).

The evaluation included the following measures:

  • Developing an understanding of the impact of the programme in the short term
  • Developing an understanding of what makes the programme successful
  • Developing an understanding of the key outcomes of the programme and long term impacts

This evidence base is vital to understanding why and how the programme works and utilises feedback and learning to enhance future project delivery.

Methodology 

To assess the success of the programme, SIRC conducted research that incorporated face to face and telephone interviews, online surveys and site visits with a range of respondents involved in running the YBBL programme, including:

  • 23 Bike Library staff or volunteers
  • 10 members of the YBBL steering group
  • 5 site visits
