Kinetic Sculpture Race 2011 Arcata CA

Art Bicycles Travel over Land, Sand and Sea…These pictures were taken at the Manila Cultural Center where the Sculptures change wheels to SandWorthy Tires for a run thru the dunes and on the Beach.

These Vehicles are Human powered ART bicycles some with as many as 8 people pedaling. Amazing. The mechanical engineering is quite complex as some people sit sideways and the chain drive is coupled together. They float and use paddles to propel the machines… also, they travel on sand dunes and down a very steep sand hill nicknamed “Deadmans Drop”… If we could just use this engineering knowhow to build a better auto, we could use less foreign oil.
