Jesse Beam took a ride on a solar powered assisted bike during the Green Grand Prix road rally for alternate-fuel vehicles and hubrids in Watkins Glen, NY. National bike month is May in the US, and the Green Grand Prix emphasizes energy independence and a cleaner environment. Motor vehicle emissions represent 31 percent of total carbon dioxide, 81 percent of carbon monoxide and 49 percent of nitrogen oxides released in the US, according to the League of American Bicyclists.
