People default to private motor
vehicles unless alternatives are
uncomplicated, safe, easy,
affordable and convenient: this
does not distinguish between
availability of safe effective
cycles, safe cycle paths, walking
tracks or public transport.

The velomobile drivetrain used an electric
motor and a fiendishly complex system of
four chains and two planetary gearboxes. It
was expensive and unreliable”

A conclusion from McCullagh
1977 and Wilson 2004 is that
50W of electricity is available
from human pedalling. Why
not use it for power &
transport?

Slide 3 projects are site-specific, but researching new cycle technology is not, it
can be used for developing, island and rural communities where intermittency
due to weather and climate make backup technologies important.
