Who we are
Ben started Yuba Bicycles out of a shipping container in Northern California putting together steel-frame, long-tail blue Yuba Mundos. Fourteen years later, supported by a whip-smart, passionate team in the U.S. and Europe, his aspirations are still the same: To better the planet by promoting the bicycle as an efﬁcient transportation tool.
A Champion canoeist and an experienced cyclist, he worked for many years in the water sports industry. He’s now in charge of the commercial and organizational development for Yuba Europe, and goes out of his way to promote the growth of bike use everywhere as an efficient mode of transportation.
