Meet the Founder.
I came to San Francisco to jockey between desks, taxis, and planes, to move numbers around excel cells, to make pretty presentations that distill information, and to create “value through insight”. I ended up riding people around the city on a bike.
I imagine you can fill in all the color yourself — the pointlessness and pressure of the corporate grind versus the freedom of the open air, and the satisfying fatigue from a long day’s work.
What’s most exciting to me about putting shiny red bikes on the streets of San Francisco is the prospect of “creating something beautiful” — building a company that is not merely sustainable, but offers an aesthetic and experience. Out in SF we seem to live in a time and place where feeling good about what you do and how you do it is as elemental to the notion of success as growth points. I believe riding a red bike in SF can be one of most appealing jobs in the States.
Why not? We are in a unique position to make it so, with opportunities for campaigns, events, tours, and lots of untapped riding locations. My full intention is to imbue our chosen profession with the integrity I feel my riders deserve. And to make something beautiful in the process.

From the founder.
In June of 2016, Cabrio Taxi celebrated 5 years of serving San Francisco by partaking in our 3rd AIDS/Lifecycle ride. The 7-day, 545-mile landmark bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles, raises money and awareness in the fight against HIV/AIDS. We also participated in 2013 & 2015.
To date, the Cabrio Taxi team has proudly raised $85,000+, and ridden 20,000+ miles training and riding for the AIDS/Lifecycle cause. I hope that we can raise $100,000 sum total this year, which would be a proud feat for my small business.
The story of HIV/AIDS begins with confusion, shame, and traumatic loss for a tight-knit community of disenfranchised people. But the story is ultimately one of empowerment -- now ending in medical victories -- that highlights the valor and resilience of human beings.
It gives me a deep sense of pride to contribute to this cause, which is a part of this City in which I live and do business -- to, as a founder, join in the community’s spirit as well as its economic activity. To do this through support of loved ones, friends, and family makes it all the sweeter.
