The Bicycle Works – The Bicycle Works Homepage

Why this, in this way, at this time?

          Since day one The Bicycle Works was a vibrant and eclectic community workshop. By almost every measure the project was a tremendous success. When I set out to start a bike co-op in Marin in 2008, I had absolutely no idea that it would work out so well. With an outpouring of support and patronage from the surrounding community we largely achieved our goals and have jump started a movement in Marin toward sustainable transportation alternatives.

          In the process of setting up the bike tool workshop as an educational resource, we also developed an expertise in cargo bikes and electric bike custom builds, sales, and service.

Colorado Plans to Eliminate Emissions from Road Transportation

Colorado is moving ahead with a plan to get nearly 1 million electric vehicles (EV) on its roads by 2030 and, for the first time, has adopted a long-term goal of transitioning to 100 percent electric and zero-emission vehicles.

The state’s Energy Office recently released the Colorado Electric Vehicle Plan 2020, an update to the 2018 EV plan that established a target of 940,000 EVs by 2030. The new plan retains that target and lays out a vision for a “large-scale transition of Colorado’s transportation system to zero emission vehicles.” That vision includes electrifying all light-duty vehicles and making all medium and heavy-duty vehicles zero-emission (including electric, hydrogen, and other zero emissions technologies).
