About TWIKErider

TWIKERider.com was launched in 2009 by Larry Dean Lillie, a long time proponent of electric and alternate fuel technologies as they relate to transportation.

Larry purchased his first Toyota Prius in September, 2001 and became a repeat customer in 2004. The Prius and other gasoline-electric Hybrids are not a perfect solution for our addiction to oil by any means, but they do present a solid mainstream alternative to gasoline powered vehicles.

Despite the Prius' not being a perfect solution, Larry saw great value in demonstrating that  by simply making a purchase decision, one can elevate the awareness of others.  In the early days Larry was continually approached by people who had not seen a Prius and those who knew about them, but were unwilling to take a chance on new technologies.

Because of his willingness to discuss the matter and offer test drives, several new Prius owners were minted.  In 2008, Larry took things a step further and began commuting to work on a pedal Surrey that he fitted with a hub motor and Lithium Iron Phosphate battery.   Click here to learn more about that project.

Always the ham, Larry enjoyed all the attention that this contraption, affectionately called "The Behemoth" was getting.

Larry's philosophy is that we can start getting the word out immediately even though we currently are not equipped to sell vehicles.

Get in. The energy revolution has three wheels, space for two people and weighs about 270 kg. For TWIKE pilots, the energy revolution is already a daily reality.

So.... Welcome to the future.

We'd love to hear about your experiences with alternate fuel vehicles and renewable energy
