Chris Schmidt of Camberville e-bike Library. Tufts Daily.

We launched a simple bike lending library in the Ravenswood neighborhood in May 2024. We’d like to shout out to Chris Schmidt of the Camberville e-bike Lending Library for his insights and assistance.

If you live in the 40th or 47th ward, you are welcome to request the equipment by completing the lending library sing-up form. If you are interested in a single day use of the cargo trailer use this form.

We are also interested in identifying other neighborhoods in Chicago (and elsewhere) where there is interest in bike lending libraries.  Please complete this survey if you live somewhere other than 47th Ward.

For any inquiries related to lending libraries, please contact
