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.

It reminds me that Numbers have flavor, meaning and emotions attached to them… Like: 61 makes me think of Highway 61 a song by Bob Dylan and sung by Johnny Winter… also the main Northern migration route from the South to Chicago or Detroit… Many people moved along this road to take JOBS in the city. 5150, Number 9, Love Potion #9, 42, 420… many numbers have flavors of their own… for a complete list read: http://gregvanderlaan.com/numbers.aspx

120 mpg car by Kinetic Sculpture Laboratory in Arcata, CA

bicycle powered gasoline car 120 mpg

bicycle powered gasoline car 120 mpg

This car is both bicycle powered and gasoline engine. Suitable for on road traffic it has an orange triangle on the back to allow it to be diven legally on highways. It goes slowly but is perfect for inner city travel. When you are on level ground just use the pedals to propell the machine… Uphill, start the engine and zoom zoom zoom… Since more than half of the time you are going downhill or level, the engine is off and you use no fuel at all.
