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!

Saturday, busy day at Earn-a-Bike, so only a short (1.8 mile) ride this morning to the coffee shop.  Love the electric assist!  The bike is heavier, but now there is no excuse for not using the bike for mad errands.  Load it up!  The commute to work on Friday was awesome, very exciting, felt like superman going up the hills.  Took about 6Ah of battery to get to work, 7Ah to get back home.  Lots of hills, some pretty steep, each way, and that has held me back from ever doing it before.  However, it is more uphill on the way home: Worcester elevation (at my place): 660 ft above sea level,  Marlborough elevation: 450 ft above sea level, so a little more power to get back.  Nonetheless, the 20Ah battery has plenty of power for a round trip, so I can leave the charger at home. Sweet!

So hey, there is a Food Truck Festival coming to Worcester on July 14.  Should the Mundo be there?  Maybe making smoothies?  Maybe "Bicycle Burrito's"?  What do you think?
