a person-driven train
cool! this looks amazing (and probably super peaceful and fun to ride).
how far can you go on this person-driven train?
@glyph it was :) this was just a smol thing, but the track was 8 km in all. made me think of the possibilities of having these sorts of tracks between towns for smaller-scale commuting. it's definitely enjoyable :~
@glyph one fun thing is when you meet someone else on the tracks, whether they are stopped or going the opposite direction—you switch bikes! it was a nice human connection that otherwise wouldn't have been had at all :)
I agree with you. We all want to save the planet, but the way to do it requires radical changes, and/or sacrifices that a large part of the population is not ready for or goes against powerful influence groups. Personally I think that hydrogen will solve a lot of our problems (but will not solve the problem of uncontrolled births: halfway through the year we consume the planet's resources).
@cblgh this is something I would love to give a try someday. It must be quite a challenge to stop this thing from moving once you get to higher speeds :-) but on the other hand I think you can get very quickly where you want to be since there is very little resistance from the road ..
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
