    available for use versus available (for you) to use

    Hello all users!

    I think I am right in saying that "The bicycle is available for use". Such construction is possible. The word "use" is used here as a noun.

    I also think it is possible to say "The bicycle is available to use" and "The bicycle is available for you to use".

    I am especially interested in the last sentences: "The bicycle is available to use" and "The bicycle is available for you to use". In both the cases, the word "use" is used as a verb. Are the sentences properly constructed?

    All the sentences were created by me.

    Thank you.

    Re: available for use versus available (for you) to use

    All of the sentences are perfectly correct.
