It's a 70m (about 230 ft.) section of the bike path. They're going to track energy production, maintenance costs etc, with a view to doing larger projects.

There's another thread concerned with this or a very similar product. Gone to look for it.

Edit - That was easy. Burra just posted to it. Here's the link ---

So, how quickly do you think the woman in that pic would be arrested for child endangerment if she tried that in the US?

I'd like to have that bakfiets, but I don't know what the heck I'd do with it considering the hills around here. I get enough funny looks when I run out of lawnmower gas, strap the 1 gallon can on my Trek's rack and go fill it up at the gas station. OTOH, it's just not worth starting the car to go 5 blocks each way if the weather is good enough to mow in.
