Have you ever worn out a bike bell from ringing it so much? Meet Steve Bodner, a Yuba Aficionado and awesome cargo bike dad! Steve has worn out quite a few bike bells on his twice daily trips across the Golden Gate Bridge on his electric Mundo Cargo Bike. With each ride, Steve and his family are advocating for the Cargo Bike lifestyle and showing folks what a bike can really do!
Steve will be the first to tell you, this cargo bike changed his life and he has hard proof of this. For one year, Steve tracked every mile he (and his little one) traveled by bike and by car, including a whopping 57 trips to the park and 22 trips to the aquarium.
“We became the envy of the preschool drop off. We zipped off to playgrounds on the other side of the city & got in and out of swim lessons without any parking problems. I even managed 9 times across the golden gate bridge with the bike on my commute. At 50 cents a mile (for car use) and $7 bridge tolls, I saved myself almost $200 for the 1st month alone.”
The Hard Numbers from year one:
That’s not all! Steve wrote a brilliant account of the year’s miles (complete with graphs) in this Medium article.
When we heard from Steve about a year later, this is what he had to say:
“20 months in and already 5000 miles on the odometer. Im averaging about 250 miles a month and the new bike feeling hasn’t even worn off yet.”
