We wanted to learn more about out how eBikes are changing families lives in New York, so we asked Cornelius, a father and educator, if we could hang out with him and his family for the day. It was really inspiring to learn how he helps others, and we had some really interesting conversations. One that stood out was about social literacy, and how it’s the small, daily interactions and connections that really shape us. There’s lots of opportunities for that in the city, but the bike opens that up even more.
