The Italian town of Bari is preparing for a pedal-powered concert, billed by organisers as the country’s first entirely eco-friendly gig.
Sound and lighting for the performance by the band Tetes de Bois on September 15 will be provided courtesy of 128 energy-generating cyclists.
“Goodbike” is the brainchild of the Roman group who are fanatical about the environmentally-friendly mode of transport.
The concert takes place in the southern town on the eve of European Mobility Week, a campaign to get more people to get about by walking, cycling or taking public transport.
“It’s the first concert in Italy with this dimension of sustainable development,” said regional transport chief Guglielmo Minervini.
