Solar Cyclists

In today’s Irish Times (Saturday May 16) there was an article about 3 environmental campaigners who will embark on a round-the-world cycling adventure to highlight the potential of solar power. On their 12,000 mile journey the 3 cyclists will use hi-tech equipment powered by the sun. They will have Nokia N79 Active phones, which come with a heart-rate monitor and pre-loaded sports tracker so they can measure their distance, speed and pace when cycling and upload their location via GPS. In the places they visit they will highlight already available solar solutions as well as demonstrating how solar energy can be used to power everyday appliances such as their phones. To follow the journey , go to http://www.thesolarcyclediaries.com  Sounds rather neat.
