Working Bikes

What a treat to come across these folks at Christianiabikes.  I am thrilled to promote them here. They have oodles of designs for bikes from child transport to transport of goods and a bike that sets up as a display. I thought it was a barbecue on wheels like the old ice cream bikes my husband drove for his first job.
Check out the gallery of bikes here.
Here is a taste of my favourites.

Merry Christmas to you all!

Greetings from the Pedalgreen Team. I hope you are enjoying a white, but green Christmas by pedal powering your Christmas tree, saving on your power bill and that you burned enough calories to really enjoy the roast beast and sweets during the season of celebration.

God bless you all in 2016!

Pedalling Libraries and Literacy, Smiles and Community

Alicia Tapia  and her bibliobicicleta    http://bibliobicicleta.com/about/

Alicia Tapia and her bibliobicicleta http://bibliobicicleta.com/about/

When my kids were little we went to the book mobile, but these enterprising librarians are delivering books by bicycle. Alicia Tapia pedals her library called Bibliobicicleta around San Francisco, sharing her love for bikes and books with children and adults and giving books for free that are freely given to her. Alicia Tapia and the growing movement including pedal powered librarians Karen Green of Tucson, and Jared Mills of Seattle are to be applauded. Well done!

You can see Alicia’s Kickstarter video here. Kickstart “Bibliobicicleta”
