Okay it’s a bit late but I thought I should have a first go at blogging by adding little piece about Bicycology at this year’s Climate Camp at Kingsnorth in Kent.
We had our own space for the first time, with a small marquee for bike workshop, evening events etc. and a dome to retreat into when we needed our own space.
Power came from solar panels and a battery array in the dome, supplemented by pedal power. We did several pedal powered film shows, an spoken word event with our friend Ben, and music from Son of Pedals, our tandem-pulled soundsystem, which you can see in the photo below.
We helped provide a fair bit of bike load-carrying capacity, which proved really useful moving food (and beer) after the police decided to prevent vehicles accessing the site.
We had a some pedal generators for children, including a pedal-powered gameboy.
That’s all for now.
