George Schnakenberg

It’s hard to know what might have come our way from the hard-working innovative mind of George Schnakenberg, who died tragically on July 24. He collapsed while riding his electric skateboard on a street in the SoMa district of San Francisco.

Schnakenberg attended the California by Bike 2013 Summit in Oakland last year where he discussed new developments in electric bike design. In May he advocated for the Protected Bikeways Act and more bike funding at CalBike’s Advocacy Day in Sacramento. His wife is expecting to give birth to their child in two months.
