Pedal Power Course, Part 2

Transition Wivenhoe hosted part 2 of our pedal powered course earlier this month which looked in detail into what makes our bicycle powered cinema tick using only ~100 Watts. We also built, christened and test rode a 'What-Watt' machine - a simple device that gives a uniquely tangible measurement of how much energy a cyclist can produce. We'll be using the 'What-Watt' at schools and events throughout the year.

The day drew to a close with a pint and some bicycle powered music on the Quay courtesy of local musician Tim Whitnell.

You can see our bicycle powered cinema in action at the University Green Fair this Wednesday and at the Sunset Cycle Cinema at this year's Wivenhoe May Fair.
