Several years ago I saw an unusual bicycle going down the street by my office. Later I met the owner and she let me take this very cool bike for a spin. This bike is made by Organic Transit in North Carolina and it’s called the ELF. It’s an enclosed bicycle that will protect you from wind and rain. It has a 100 Watt solar panel on the roof that charges lithium ion batteries sitting below the driver seat. The bike is geared properly so you can pedal comfortably, or you can add power from the battery, or drive on battery power alone. This is a great concept for city driving and it was real fun to ride.
