LOCATED ON THE GREENWAY

Marin's North-South Greenway now reaches the Golden Gate Ferry terminal in Larkspur thanks to a bike bridge that spans Sir Francis Drake Blvd., passing right in front of The New Wheel Larkspur Landing. This is due to the efforts of many visionary local activists and politicians, and the passionate leadership of the Marin County Bike Coalition. They know that bicycle and mass transit infrastructure investments in the 21st century show a documented pattern of success.


The New Wheel is a sponsor of the Marin County Bike Coalition.

WHY ELECTRIC BIKES IN MARIN?

The electric bike is the most common electric vehicle in places with serious congestion - major Chinese cities, Manhattan, and almost every large European metropolis. Electric bikes just makes sense when you want to stay active while living a modern, connected life that's low on traffic.


The truth is, a car is simply not always the best tool for the job. In fact, present day electric bikes have a range better than the Chevy Volt, while paying for themselves in 7 to 9 months in places like the San Francisco Bay Area.

WHAT IS AN ELECTRIC BICYCLE?


ABOUT OUR FOUNDERS

Both of us have roots in the San Francisco Bay Area. Brett was born and raised atop a hill in San Francisco. Karen was born in Copenhagen, but moved when she was young to Sausalito, where her family has lived since the 1940's.


We met at UC Berkeley in Robert Reich’s public policy class and we've been together ever since. We’re pretty sure that our compatibility can be chalked up to shared ambition, a desire to go beyond the status quo, and a mutual contrarian streak.


Our passion for electric bikes can be attributed to many things, but the combination of growing up among San Francisco's legendary hills and a lasting desire to do good work for our community top the list.
