MODA – Tireside Chat: Civilized Cycles with Zachary Schieffelin

May 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

$10
Join us for a conversation with Zachary Schieffelin, founder & CEO of Civilized Cycles.

Zach will tell us how he went from being the founder and owner of Vespa Soho in New York City, the largest Vespa dealer in the U.S., to founding Civilized Cyles, an e-bicycle company with the goal of proving that our low carbon future isn’t a sacrifice, its an upgrade.

The company’s first bike — the Model 1 — is part of MODA’s exhibition, Bike to the Future. It was designed to have cross-appeal with both urban dwellers looking for an easier way to get around than Uber or the subway and suburbanites who are looking for a way to reduce their car use, but still need space for passengers or cargo.

About Zachary Schieffelin

Zach is a lifelong rider, mechanic, and builder who believes that we can transform the mobility landscape away from heavy, dangerous, gas-guzzling vehicles to light, fun, healthy and safer alternatives. He has been a lifelong student of transportation and is a graduate of the NYU Stern School of Business.
