    Bicycle Energy and alternative power solutions

    Post  Floyd on Fri Apr 16, 2010 4:35 am

    Hi fellow muckers just thought id pop by.

    Bicycle power. You can
    attach a bicycle to a portable rechargable battery or a portable power
    generator that can be recharged.

    It would probably be useful to
    have portable fold out solar panels which could also power your portable
    generator.

    It would be good exercise too. You could even put a
    gigantic landscape painting in front of the bike to make it look like
    you were actually going somewhere!

    Clearly these are only short
    term interim solutions but may help in a community or on a solo/small
    group basis.

    you can make the generators yourself or buy them
    complete.

    This site is a good resource

    Thanks for the great info. Take a look at this- They use a bicycle generator and I wondered about it.
