Episode 50 - FIDDY!

December 17, 2017

Wow! I can't believe it's been a year since the first Plug Your Ride podcast! THANK YOU for your support and, mostly, your emails and Facebook messages.

So, after I spend $800 on an Eddie-powered folding bike for the Tesla, Tobe & Sergio email to tell me about a great ELECTRIC folding bike they got for their Tesla. Fit's perfectly in the back AND helps with those uphill rides. FOR UNDER $500!
