Farmers markets are one of the best parts of living in the Bay Area! Every weekend there are tons of outdoor markets where you can get locally grown, sustainable fresh food and flowers. In a world where food production is becoming increasingly anonymous, farmers markets are a great place to meet the people who grow your food […]

With such a rich and wild history, it’s no surprise that the Bay Area has its share of ghost stories. And since Halloween is right around the corner, we thought we’d hop on our 2.0s and scare up a list of East Bay spots with spooky histories. We hope that they get you into the holiday spirit. Visit if you […]

If you live in Oakland, there’s no way you’ve missed the hullabaloo of roadwork stretching from 27th Street to Broadway Avenue on Telegraph Avenue. A lot of people puzzled, between expletives, at what this massive project that congested traffic for so long could possibly be. But as smooth asphalt was laid and crisp lines were […]

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never so much as touched a scooter a single day in your life, the GenZe 2.0 is impossible not to fall in love with. This electric scooter is popular with advanced riders, but its beautiful, simple design makes having a panic-free good time an accessible experience for even the most […]

first time scooter rider

By: Kit Friday Ever since seeing Roman Holiday as a teenager, I’ve longed for a scooter. I mean, who isn’t enchanted with the freedom and convenience that their image alone communicates. But at some point between the TV screen and reality I got caught up in a self-doubt spiral about my ability to actually drive […]

By: Sara Geonczy, Outreach Specialist at Drive Oregon I had never really thought of using or commuting with a scooter, so when I was given a chance to test ride the GenZe 2.0 electric scooter for a few days, I didn’t have any expectations. I am a bike commuter, almost exclusively, although I occasionally ride […]

A lot of people ask how the GenZe 2.0 handles hills. Fortunately for us, most of Portland isn’t very hilly, however the hills we do have are nothing to shake a stick at. The GenZe 2.0 is designed to take hills of up to a 20% grade without a problem – so I decided to […]

By: Kit Friday Commuting to and from work doesn’t tend to be a favorite time of day for most folks. Traffic is a mess, public transportation is crazy, and everyone is crabby. Until I figure out how to be independently wealthy, commuting is a necessary evil that isn’t going to be changing anytime soon for […]

This month, we partnered with our first scooter dealer, the San Francisco Scooter Centre. Their team has been so enthusiastic about our products, and have quickly grasped the ins and outs of how they work, what they can handle, and what they can do. To push this to the limit, owner Barry Gwin and his son took […]

Sterling coffee 1

Living in Portland offers some great food and beverage perks. From craft beer to fantastic food, virtually every neighborhood is a microcosm of artisanal consumables. My personal favorite indulgence is coffee. The coffee community has been thriving since the early nineties, and Portland was at the forefront of third wave coffee roasting. On a sunny […]

Up in Portland, we are loving our new storefront location on the corner of SE Grand and Main. To celebrate, I decided to go for a ride on one of our e-bikes—from our new digs all the way to Mt. Tabor! The ride was fantastic, and I got to hit some of my favorite spots […]

I love my job. Working as an assistant in the financial district definitely has its perks (easy BART access, great views and the thrill of city living that we all seek in our twenties), but I can’t help but to feel a little bit overwhelmed when I take my breaks. It’s actually kinda cold over […]
