I’m proud to announce that Power Biker has been accepted to exhibit at World Maker Faire New York on September 21 & 22, 2013 http://makerfaire.com/ . Come see me there!
For this event I’m going to make Power Biker taller, at least 10′ high with more lights, and more wattage! The top level will be 500W and since that’s really challenging for any one person, I’m going to have two bikes! So bring a friend.
Today I’m bringing Power Biker to destination Moon, a solar powered music and art festival. The festival is on Manhattans upper west side. Power Biker is in my studio in Red Hook Brooklyn. I’m going to bike it under my own power through Brooklyn, over the Manhattan Bridge, across Lowe Manhattan, and up the west side.
Why not just put it in a van?
Because Power Biker is part of a vision where people transit themselves and cargo with their own power. It imagines a world of healthy exercise and clean energy.
It’s true, no one would know if I drove. But now you know that I at least made the attempt to bike it. It’s no going to be easy, but change never is.
