Clark and the SF Environment Bike

Our new electric cargo bicycle has arrived and we are riding in style to community events around the city. Take a peak at our newest addition to the outreach team and find out how we are leading by example, on wheels! Instead of driving a city vehicle, the outreach team will be riding the bike to community events all over the city in the coming months to engage with residents about our current campaigns and programs. Take a look at some of the innovative features on the bike:

Utility

  • 440 lbs carrying capacity of cargo (800 with trailer) allows us to bring an entire information booth setup without a car
  • Trailer doubles as a table for events
  • Electric assist wheel gets up the hills with heavy loads

Community Engagement

  • Interactive educational exhibit at events for people of all ages
  • Generates up to 600 watts of electricity when pedaled on a stationary stand, allowing us to pedal power press conferences and music
  • Blender attachment for making smoothies at events

Leading by Example                                                         

  • First SF City department to utilize a cargo bicycle
  • Increased awareness about bicycling and energy consumption
  • Eliminates the need to use a car at public events
