Join us on Dec. 7th as we once again participate in a fun event for a worthy cause.

WHAT: The Supermarket Street Sweep is an annual bike race that benefits the San Francisco and Marin Food Banks! For the past 7 years, hundreds of participants have zipped around the city to local supermarkets and brought back thousands of pounds of food to donate to this wonderful charity.

WHEN: Saturday, December 7, 2013. High Noon.

WHERE: Cupid’s Span (Bow & Arrow) at Folsom and Embarcadero.

The Yuba Team has so much fun at this event, collecting food, raising money and awareness for a worthy cause, while hanging out with other Cargo Bicycle riders and showing “What a Bicycle Can Do!”

We’d love to see YOU, our Bay Area family at the event.  Let us know if you plan to be there!

Report from Pedalfest

Here’s a video from KTVU showing all the shenanigans at Pedalfest 2013. Check out the Yuba segment around the 1:00 mark.

DSC04811We had a fantastic time at the East Bay Bike Coalition’s Pedalfest at beautiful Jack London Square this past weekend. This event was especially special, because we got to hang out with our friends in Cyclecide and Rock the Bike as well as connect with our many customers in the the East Bay.

Oakland’s Mayor Jean Quan stopped by to check out the elBoda. She was very excited to learn about the advances in ebike technology since she bought her first electric bike ten years ago (can we say ebike pioneer?) Maybe we’ll get her on one next year….

All in all, it was a great event! Many thanks to East Bay Bike Coalition, Bay Area Bikes and Jack London Square for hosting us!

Boda Boda Beyond Thunderdome

Some of our customers really exemplify the Yuba spirit; they put a lot of effort into helping others put the fun into bicycles and really having a ball on their Yubas. We’ve shown you pictures of Tim’s Pimped Out Boda Boda Before – but have you seen it dressed up as a autogyro from Mad Max? No, neither had we. 

Enjoy, 

Yuba

I’m a both a Ride Leader and Chain Guard (safety) member of both the Denver Bike Night and the Denver Cruiser Ride. Last week our theme was “Mad Max, Beyond Thunderdome”, so I dressed up both myself and the bike as the Auto-Gyro Pilot. I had a great time and so did Max & Lu.

Petaluma, California – June 1, 2013 – Lagunitas Beer Sanctuary announces Brews and Bites for Bounty, a fundraising event for Petaluma Bounty on Tuesday, July 16, 2012 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm.

The event features entertainment by The Highway Poets, an award-winning Northern California band, well known for its lively blend of rock, folk, and indie music. A raffle will be held for a Yuba Mundo Cargo Bike, valued at $1,250. The bike is generously donated by Petaluma-based Yuba Bikes.

Tickets are $25.00, which includes wood-fired pizza from Pizza Politana, Bounty Farm-grown salad, and drink token. Children under six years old will be admitted free of charge. Event tickets may be purchased in advance from the Petaluma Bounty website, www.petalumabounty.org, and will also be available at the door. Proceeds from Brews and Bites for Bounty will support Petaluma Bounty’s programs to make healthy food available to everyone.

Through a strategic alliance with Petaluma People Service Center (PPSC) and the help of hundreds of volunteers, Petaluma Bounty provides sustainably grown food to the Petaluma community, including affordable produce to low-income families and seniors for whom fresh, locally grown food would otherwise be inaccessible.

Formed in 2006, Petaluma Bounty’s programs include a network of community gardens throughout Petaluma to increase food self-sufficiency and strengthen community: Bounty Hunters – a community food gleaning program that collects fresh, surplus food from backyard gardens, farms and businesses and distributes it to food pantries and senior centers; the Bounty Community Farm – an educational urban farm growing sustainably- farmed food for the community and teaching sustainable agriculture to students, interns and the general public; the Bounty Box Program/PLAY (Petaluma Loves Active Youth) collaboration with Petaluma Health Center.

Yuba advocates the use of bicycles as transportation through the design and manufacture of unique cargo bikes and accessories. The company’s mission is to transform lives, cultures, and reshape infrastructure. To learn more, visit www.yubabikes.com.

The Lagunitas Brewery and Beer Sanctuary is located at 1280 North McDowell Blvd. in Petaluma.
