If you didn’t make it to the Bicycle Music Festival yesterday, you missed out.
For a little while, there were performances in the middle of Dolores St. Oddly enough, this did not appear to bother the police.
As soon as they tried to setup in the park, the police tried to shut it down. Luckily they were able to get permission to use the movie night's permit and eventually played.
This is the power-generating setup they used. 5 bikes in total; the three far bikes were all connected to the same unit.
After everyone confused this object with a bong, it was revealed to be the power meter. There was a fan at the bottom of the tube whose speed was regulated by the power being generated by the cyclists. As they pedaled, an empty beer can would move up and down the tube--into the red if they were pedaling too much and into the orange if they were not pedaling enough.
I never did figure out if this was a cello case or a coffin...
