Portable Solar Charging for Bike to Work DayBy Jeff Crystal
We left the house a bit earlier than usual today to support NYC’s Bike to Work Day in our own solar-powered way. We decked out our usual commuter bicycle with 60+ Watts of portable solar panels, 180 Watt hours of charging capacity, and lots of connectors to charge up smartphones, tablets and even a MacBook.
We started by going over the Brooklyn Bridge.
Next, we headed over to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal. Definitely fewer bikers coming off the ferry than going over the bridge, but that gave us time to become a member of Transportation Alternatives.
Finally, headed back over the Manhattan bridge to DUMBO. The re-fueling station on the Manhattan Bridge was packed and the stream of bikers coming over the bridge was nonstop.
