The Bicycle Works in Marin County Selling More Electric Mundos

The Bicycle Works is Marin County’s first non-profit bicycle co-op.  Directors Jelani Bertoni and Spokey Godfrey, have launched this project in San Anselmo to inspire people to live more active, sustainable lives.  This amazing do-it-yourself bicycle workshop offers the community a place for people to get bicycle knowledge and skills so that everyone can use a bike for their everyday transportation.  They have a passion for getting people out of their cars and on their bikes.  Part of that passion is their realization that many more people will get out of their cars if they can have an electric-assist bike.  The Bicycle Works is a laboratory for electric bike testing and development.  If you stop by their shop in San Anselmo they would be happy to show you their electric Mundo.  Come see what an electric Mundo can do for you!
