A Wheel-Loving Family Invites Us Over For A Ride

Kids and bikes tend to go together like peanut butter and jelly. But when it comes to Lea Sabado’s crew—the bike love is a big ‘ol family affair. Lea and her husband Andre work as a CPA and public school educator (respectively) by day, while also running Excelsior Coffee, a neighborhood coffee shop that’s heavy on motorcycle culture and Filipino desserts. To add to the juggle, the San Francisco-based duo is raising two adorable boys—3-year-old Cruz and 6-week-old Malcolm.

Recently, the sweet family invited us over to talk shop and check out their various rides (an impressive collection of motorbikes and vintage cars included), as well as try out a brand-new whip for little Cruz: the woom 2. Ideal for kids ages 3 to 4 1/2, the innovative and lightweight woom 2 is specifically designed to transition kids off of balance bikes and onto pedal bikes—no training wheels needed!

Read about Cruz’s seamless (and enthusiastic!) transition to bike riding and discover the family’s inspiring story in our slideshow below!
