Trying Out an ELF
May 17, 2016
Charlene Minor drives an ELF in her job as sustainability coordinator for the Town of Davidson.
ELF stands for Electric, Light and Fun — three words that describe the three-wheeled vehicles made by Organic Transit in Durham. These sleek, recumbent bicycles — the kind you sit down to ride – come with pedals, handlebars and hand-brakes, as on any bicycle.
But the ELF also has a lightweight shell with solar panels on top to charge a battery that gives you a little extra boost when you need it.
