We maintain their four mountain bikes at Eastbourne railway station.
The bike rack is just outside the concourse between Subway and the Gildredge pub.
YellowBike's website explains how you can book these bikes - you pay online and they text you a code to enter by a keyboard built in to the bike rack.
W H Smith, on the station concourse, will supply you with a helmet and combination lock.
Each bike is equipped with a rear carrier for your belongings.
IF, HOWEVER, YOU WANT A BIKE FOR A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME OR WANT ANOTHER TYPE OF BIKE OR YOU NEED A BIKE TO BE MENDED THEN, PLEASE READ ON!
Eastbourne is the sunniest and driest place in the UK.

We are surrounded by beautiful countryside
and quiet lanes; all just waiting to be explored. Four miles to the west of Eastbourne is the world-famous Beachy Head and bicycle routes across the South Downs
National Park like the South Downs Way which stretches from Eastbourne to Winchester; a distance of some 100 miles.
Links to some bike routes
Don't forget, you can take a bike on the trains (free of charge) at Eastbourne from just before 9am, so you can explore far afield: Lewes or London, for instance.
You have come to the right place if you want a bike but don't want to spend a lot exploring this beautiful area
whilst enjoying the health benefits that come with cycling.
Remember, our main reward is your satisfaction.
You can pay by credit or debit card (over £5.00) or by Internet Banking or in cash, of course.
We don't accept cheques.
Any refund due will be made in the same way and, if applicable, to the same credit or debit card as payment was originally made with.
If you want us to reserve one or more bikes for you we would be happy to do so, for up to two weeks, upon receipt of 20% of the bike's purchase
price. This will be deducted from whatever you owe us when you come to collect the bike.
(If you decide you don't want the bike you reserved for the period originally stated your deposit will not normally
be returned to you, unless, of course, you have another of our bikes.)
Deposits can be accepted by credit or debit card or by Internet Banking payment to our bank account. Please email for its details.
We usually have a supply of locks (only £1 net cost when you return them - even after months!), lights, rear carriers, helmets etc
which can be added to our bikes at competitive prices.
We repair bikes for just £15 per hour plus parts at cost: these are usually obtained secondhand
so they are inexpensive and quite often we can repair your bike while you wait. We charge a flat £5 to repair a puncture.
