Alternative fuel vehicles are showing up more often on the roads these days, as some drivers look for eco-friendly ways to get around. Hybrids and electric cars are fast enough for the highway. But what if you want something simpler? I recently had a chance to test drive an ELF - an electric assisted bicycle made here in North Carolina.

When you think about bike riding, an early morning ride on a well paved trail may be the first thing that comes to mind. But a group of cyclists are on a mission to prove you can bike all over Charlotte no matter what time of day it is. WFAE’s Sarah Delia joined them for a nighttime ride and filed this report.

Charlotte B-Cycle

Charlotte’s bike sharing program, B-Cycle, has been up and running for nine months now. You’ve probably noticed the bike racks in and near Uptown, marked with the circular red, white, and blue “B” logo. WFAE’s Duncan McFadyen reports the program is taking off.
