What is the Mundo?

I am the very happy owner of a Yuba Mundo Cargo bike, a purpose-built, long-tail, heavy-duty bike that is built to be a serious replacement for a carbon-emitting vehicle. I'm learning more every day what a bike can do, and I'm becoming convinced that a cargo bike with an electric assist is a truly fantastic machine!

Today's ride was only about 4 miles.  Went to the post office, got some stuff for dinner, and went and had a coffee.  Thought it was kind of a wimpy ride, but then again it just goes to show that a bicycle is much better than a car for running errands.  In fact, according to the 2009 National Household Travel Survey, urban dwellers (like us in Worcester) travel an average of 5.3 miles in our cars to do "errands".  With a bike like the Mundo and the new Go-Getter bag, I could pick up a load of groceries and tote my laptop to the coffee shop with ease.  Love it!
