Rayon Rose and Electric Pedals bring bike power to Leeds. Learn how to make your own bicycle-powered generator from components brought along by Electric Pedals and then power Rayon Rose’s caravan sound system with your own two feet.
There will also be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and develop your own bike-powered projects. Come along all day if you want to learn how to build your own generator or turn up at 5pm if you just want to see the generator in action and talk to the experts about all things bike-powered.
Rayon Rose run events in their super-cute 1960s caravan. It’s decorated like a boudoir inside and is stripped aluminum outside so that it resembles a mini-airstream with a surprisingly sumptuous interior.
So far the caravan has been an outdoor tearoom at Light Night and a number of Festivals, a mini-cinema at the Leeds International Film Festival and a tattoo parlour for Unlimited Theatre’s production ‘The Giant and The Bear’. It’s too old to have electricity so Rayon Rose are very interested in bike power.
Electric Pedals are artists, physicists, educationalists & environmentalists who specialise in building bespoke bicycle powered installations. In the past they have powered stages, projectors, cinema systems and even houses.
Some of their installations are designed to engage people with issues of energy wastage and to teach the science of generating electricity. And some are just for fun. They like to involve people in their experiments and bring communities together.
