WWF Earth Hour2018-2.jpg


In a head-to-head race, challengers attempt to generate the amount of human energy required to boil an extremely small amount of water.

Educational and highly competitive; it's a fun and engaging activity that is suitable for adults and children.



Our power challenge is very much like a fair ground high striker; it’s a test of how much power a person can generate in an instance! A great way for someone to feel in their legs what it takes to power everyday household appliances.

  • Power Challenge - £800

+ transportation costs

8-Way Charger

Use a single bike to charge up to 8 phones simultaneously.

Plug in and play! Because this system is so easy to set-up and use, it is ideal for dry hiring. .

BoomBox Sound System (1 of 1)-3.jpg


Our Bicycle-Powered Sound Systems are perfect for indoor or outdoor live music events, concerts, discos and DJ set-ups. Our small systems are perfect for presentations, broadcasts, community/school events. Our live music systems run without batteries or mains supply; it is the audience that has to provide all the energy required for the performance.

Pedal power is much more than a cleaner alternative for mains electricity; bicycle-powered performances create a unique atmosphere in which the audience can cycle, dance, laugh and enjoy the music as they generate all the power required to keep the music alive!


Our bicycle-powered cinemas are 100% human powered and completely off-grid. All the electricity for the performance is produced by the cyclists. There are no batteries, generators or back-up power sources. Clean, efficient and sustainable; we arrive at each event with no stored power, and leave with nothing.

Having generated their own energy, we hope that people will be encouraged to think about energy consumption and, hopefully, even make a small step towards reducing their own every day energy consumption.

We offer three cinema set-ups: SMALL, MEDIUM and LARGE

The cinema set-up you require will depend on audience size and whether your event is indoors or outdoors.

DAY HIRE (inc. staff)

  • Small Cinema / Music - £1,050

  • Medium Cinema / Music - £1,600

  • Large Cinema / Music - £2,100

  • Event marshals (large set-ups only)

  • Suitable space to host your event e.g Blackout tent, indoor or outdoor space (cinema needs to be quite ambient with no direct sunlight)




The ‘Photon’ is a 100% human powered micro-cinema with built in power management system and sound. Suitable for small audiences, classrooms, corporate events or pop-up cinemas in obscure places. Upload short films to the internal media player with a USB stick and the cinema auto-starts when the cyclist starts to generate.

Suitable for audiences of 20-30 people.

BoomBox Sound System (1 of 1)-3.jpg


The Boombox sound system is portable enough to be transported and set up anywhere. With two subwoofers and two detachable high-end speakers, it packs a punch! Yet it is super efficient and relies on the pedal-power of just a single adult or a few school children. 

Bluetooth compatibility means you can play your favourite music from your phone, ipod or laptop.

Here is a list of frequently asked questions regarding out Bicycle Powered Cinema.

If you have a question that is not listed below, please get in touch via our contact page.


Does it have to be dark for the cinema?

For a cinema event, YES. If outdoors we would advise screening half an hour after sunset. Please check sunset times before booking. For indoor screenings it is important to have control of the rooms lighting. Any windows, skylights or fire exists may compromise the image on screen.

What do we provide?

We provide all the kit including power management, bicycles and A/V equipment. All you have to do is provide a suitable space for us to set up. If you are booking a cinema, you will be responsible for arranging the film license.

Where do I get a film license?

Please contact for details.

Are you insured?

Yes, we have full public liability insurance and a 100% safety record.

Do you need power?

Our bicycle-powered cinemas and challenges are 100% human powered. We do not require mains electricity or generators and we leave no lasting footprint on the environment.

How do you secure the screen?

We base our quotes on a grass set up on the assumption that we can spike 4x 600mm anchor stakes into the ground for the screen guy ropes. These stakes leave no significant damage to the ground. If your site is not on grass this is not a problem but you will need to arrange for suitable screen weights. There will be a hire charge if you would like Electric Pedals to organise ballast.

Can we screen anything before the film?

Of course. We often screen our own bicycle-related short films. We are happy to run any advertising/promotional content you may have or show any short films if you supply us with them before the event day.

Can we play music before the event?

We always bring our own music and playlists but you are more than welcome to play your own music. Just bring along your phone or Ipod and plug into our system. We can accommodate DJ/live music set-ups for pre-screening engagement. You are responsible for the PRS license.

What if it rains?

We will not operate in the rain or strong wind. Therefore, we strongly recommend you arrange a contingency space in case of adverse conditions.

What about wind?

We can screen in wind speeds up to 25knots. Above that and we will have to take the screen down for health and safety reasons.

Do we pay in advance?

We take 50% deposit before your event to confirm the booking and 50% after the event, no late than 30 days.

Do you give refunds?

If you have to cancel or reschedule we will try and give a full or partial refund providing you give us enough notice and we can re-book that date.
