    RIDE FOR RENEWABLES UPDATE

    Ride for Renewables; 100% By 202
    Tom Weiss, October 2010 (Ride for Renewables blog)

    October 23, 2010; Riverfront Bike Path (Greening the Grid One Home at a Time)
    "…On the way, saw a home near Litchfield with a residential wind turbine and solar tracker, so I had to stop. Pedaled down a side road to get to the house and knocked on the door to ask about their setup. Turns out the owner wasn’t home, but his daughter…was clearly very knowledgeable about the system, and was happy to give me a quick tour…"

    "… Cruising up the frontage rode to Interstate 55 on the way to Springfield, saw a large single wind turbine and rolled down a gravel road to get a closer look. Discovered that the Gob Nob Wind Turbine sits right on top of the former Crown coal mine! Could not have a more fitting site to be generating green energy for the people of Illinois…"

    October 25, 2010; Springfield, Illinois (Appeal to the President)
    "…Got to the Capitol grounds and found the precise location where the President gave his speech, but the grounds were closed. So filmed the video outside the gate (as best I could, with so many people coming up and asking about the trike), making a heartfelt appeal to the President to follow through on the bold and inspiring proclamations he issued in his announcement speech…"
