We had a great turn-out for the launch of the Peddle Power Point at Richmond Library.
Who knew peddle-powering iPhones and blending smoothies could get so competitive? The first smoothie of the day was blended by City of Yarra Mayor Cr Phillip Vlahogiannis, while others (looking at you, speedy-YEF-CEO) were VERY quick to follow. A whopping 157km has now been pedalled since the launch, as people drop by to charge their devices and test the kinetic technology.
The bike provides a small glimpse of how easily we can use renewable, clean and alternative forms of energy to power our everyday comforts. Alternatives to coal-dependence exist in a variety of forms! Well done to Tara and Leena, City of Yarra grant recipients who brought their peddle powering dreams to life by putting on this display.
Supported by the City of Yarra and YEF, the Peddle Power Point will be at the Richmond library until the end of July, so drop by and burn some calories instead of brown coal next time you need to charge your electronic devices.
