Ditch the car and get an e-bike

Driving in San Francisco sucks. Let’s just all agree to that. When we first moved here and looked at a map, I remember thinking how accessible the city looked. Our new apartment was only going to be 2.5 miles from my husband’s new office. Great! Just a quick 15 minute bus ride.

We were in for a rude awakening when it came to San Francisco traffic. We’ve since moved farther from my husband’s office, and now his 4.5 mile commute on the bus takes almost an hour. He would get home stressed, sweaty, and just generally pissed.

Aside from commuting, we tend to do a lot of driving because we have two toddlers. I’ve never managed to navigate public transit with them, and there’s only so much we can walk to in our neighborhood, so we end up driving. In fact, we couldn’t even find a daycare within walking distance, so we have to drive the twins to Pacific Heights three days per week.

We knew there had to be a better way. A way to get around the city that was more fun and more enjoyable and gasp faster than driving.
