Ride Description

Ride Report
We had 25 riders for a short tour of solar homes in Inner Southeast Portland. We got to tour one home with a solar water heating system and another with a photovoltaic (solar electric) system. The riders got to learn all about how the technology works, how much it costs, and see different examples. Everyone seemed to have a good time, and the tour will probably be repeated with the Easy Riders later in the summer.
