Hampshire’s Pedal-Powered Washing Machine!

We’re not the only ones in Hampshire thinking laterally about bikes and their uses.

The guys at Community First East Hampshire showed me an amazing project called Cyclean.

Alex Gadsden lives in Rake, about 10 miles down the road from our base at Alice Holt Forest.  He has invented a pedal-powered washing machine, enabling you to clean your clothes and get fit simultaneously, without consuming all the energy used by a regular washing machine.

Alex has been booked as an on-site laundry service for this year’s Glastonbury festival. Have a look at the Cyclean website if you want to know more about his invention.
