Ross Evans, Founder and CEO of Xtracycle
In 1995, 19-year-old Ross Evans stowed his Stanford University textbooks and travelled to Nicaragua, carrying with him bike tools, a welder and a question for his undergraduate thesis: could a different kind of bicycle help lift the poor out of poverty? Alongside a group of war-disabled men, he set out to design an elegant, affordable solution. His passion to empower people with transformational tools continues today at the helm of Worldbike.org and Xtracycle—a pioneering manufacturer of electric and lifestyle bicycles. Ross’s two sons believe him to be 3.14 parts dragon. He is constitutionally unemployable.

She Googled “family bike” and uncovered a global movement of people replacing cars with cargo bikes: long-frame bicycles designed for carrying passengers and heavy loads.
