I was visiting a charming little farmer’s market in Durham this weekend and stumbled on a green product called the ELF. This bicycle is an excellent example of innovation, green design, and style. This battery assisted, solar charged bike will go 1.5 hours on a charge depending on total weight on a charge and allows you to apply pedal power to extend your ride. It has a shell to protect you in weather, small storage area, and will go 30 mph while pedaling. It takes approximately 2.5 hours to recharge the battery via outlet and 7 hours via sunlight.
