"Next to a leisurely walk I enjoy a spin on my tandem bicycle. It is splendid to feel the wind in my face and the springy motion of my iron steed. The repad rush through the air gives me a delicious sense of strength and buoyance, and the exercise makes my pulses dance and my heart sing."

Bicycle Bookmobile


Bicycle Bookmobiles have become a unique and powerful tool for community outreach ever since the internet has taken a bite out of the "going to the library" experience. Pedal Positive has been building custom bookbikes for libraries, schools, businesses, and organizations worldwide. The first pedal powered bookmobile that Pedal Positive created was for the Denver Public Library in 2012 based on a "Think outside the box." community outreach employee contest. Since that shoestring budget, cobbled together monster of a bookbike much has been learned about the dynamics of an adaptable superior functioning bicycle bookmobile. Things like cargo capacity, range traveled, terrain, various sized operators all go into the planning of a bookbike. Options like electric motor assist, custom colors, graphics, and unique details to reflect the organization and community it represents can make the difference between a generic bike bookmobile and a truly eye catching and inviting pedaler of books.

Joe Crennen will work one on one with you to create the special model bookbike that denotes your wishes. No two bookbikes build by Pedal Positive have been exactly alike. Delivery across the United States and Canada are almost always handled in house. This allows the bookbike to be delivered damage free, professionally assembled, inspected, and cleaned. We also take the time to teach operators the riding characteristics of their bookbike as well as setup and take down while out and about. Contact Pedal Positive now to see what kind of bicycle bookmobile best suits your needs.
