Ski, Surf, and Camp - 3 Ways to Replace Your Car in 2023
This year's goals: be happier, healthier, and greener and any time we can swap our car for our e-bike checks all three boxes! We've rounded up the coolest ways to enjoy sticking closer to home (AKA Microadventures) and fully embrace enjoying the journey, not just the destination. Bonus points for cutting back on traffic time, parking hassles, and carbon emissions!
1. Shuttle to the Lift Line
Embrace snow days to the fullest with the all-new Yuba Ski Rack! Take the scenic route to the lifts and skip worrying about traffic, parking, and juggling all the kiddos' gear.
Shop compatible Yuba e-cargo bike models: Spicy Curry $4,999 and Spicy Curry AT (All-Terrain) $5,499
Shop Yuba Ski Rack $350
2. Beachfront Parking
Whether the wind is nuking, the surf is cranking, or the bocce ball picnic is calling, you can load up your kiteboard, surf board or lawn chairs for an epic multi-sport adventure.
Psst... this rack works great for skis and snowboards, too!
3. Two-Wheeled Overnights
E-bike packing covers a huge range of camping styles, setups, and terrain. You can hit the singletrack, gravel, or pavement. You can rough it, "glamp" it (glamorous camping), or "credit card tour" by paying for meals and accommodations along the way. No matter what you choose, you can escape the crowds, arrive with time and energy to enjoy the camping experience, and pack without worrying so much about weight (ahem... wine, anyone?).
Here are a few e-bike packing setup ideas to get you started:
- Load up your Electric Cargo Bike (Yuba Spicy Curry AT and Cube Cargo Sport pictured)
- Pull a Burley Coho XC Cargo Trailer $449.99 (pictured with Scott Strike)
- Accessorize with Ortlieb bike-packing bags
