Blog lift-off

Just found out – thanks to Jo we've now got a really simple system for
using our blogspot – it's dead easy. And thank you, Mark, at the
Apricot Centre (in the Stour Valley Transition group), who spent
Monday evening patiently showing us what you can do blog-wise. And
Sunday night at the movies was great, with that pedal powered
technology that anyone can use, but credit to Jay for creating
it . . . that takes a bit more doing.

bike powered movie on You Tube !



This is Jay's amazing Cycle Cinema we used for the films at the Greyhound last Sunday! In the clip The Story of Stuff is showing and the video is taken from behind the bike looking towards the screen. We had to use a little back up from the grid so we nearly managed zero carbon this time. This was the bike cinema's debut public performance so a useful trial for the inventor... While it might sound a little noisy - the camera was close up to the mechanism - the audience could hear the film just fine. Thanks to all the pedallers and Colchester Cycling Champions who supplied the bike freebies for them.
