I put the Wheel on the bike I love
We met with Lizzie outside her office in San Francisco.
SP: Why did you get the Copenhagen Wheel?
Lizzie: To commute to work in Golden Gate Park from Oakland, I have to go over a massive hill, so I drove instead. I would spend about two hours in traffic and get to the office stressed out. The Copenhagen Wheel has given me the ability to commute on my bike again!
SP: What bike did you put the Wheel on?
Lizzie: My classic Bridgestone mountain bike. I love it. I love that I could build a powered bike by around my trusty commuter with the Wheel. My fiancée Charlotte rides with it sometimes, too.
SP: What are your rides like?
Lizzie: I travel along The Wiggle, a very popular bike route, on my ride through San Francisco to Golden Gate Park. Bikers and pedestrians always ask about the Wheel along the way. I love encouraging them to get the Wheel to make bike commuting more tangible.
SP: What's your life like with the Wheel?
Lizzie: I no longer have to drive!! The drive between Oakland and San Francisco is awful. Now instead of a two-hour drive in traffic, I get to be on my bike. I love it.
SP: So do you use your car less now?
Lizzie: Definitely! I ride my bike most days to work now.
SP: How would you describe the riding experience?
Lizzie: Huge hills and obstacles are flat! I get the best of biking: feeling a part of the city without the stress of worrying about making it up huge San Francisco hills.
