AltWheels 2007!



It's hard to believe that AltWheels is here again. I helped organize this eclectic mix of veggie, hybrid, natural gas, bio-diesel, solar, and human powered vehicles when it was still being held at the Larz Anderson Museum in Brookline. Ah, those days when I was the "bike guy" so many years ago in 2003. Many thanks to Alison Sander for keeping her vision moving forward.
