Christmas trees need lights, and lights need power. Where does the power come from? This Winter, THE POWER COMES FROM YOU!
Make.Shift invites you to participate in our first full day of human powered holiday joy. By hopping on one of our Power Wheel bike generators this December 10 and 11, you’ll be among the few people in the world to light up a Christmas tree with nothing but sweat and festive cheer!
Beginning at 10 am at the Farmer’s Market in Depot Market Square, we’ll be cranking the generators for a full 24 hours until 10 am Sunday, December 11.
Riders will be going on an hour-long stationary riding tour of the square, with live entertainment, tasty refreshments, and of course – the fruit of their labors – A MAGNIFICENT HUMAN POWERED CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING THEIR JOURNEY THROUGH THE NIGHT.
Riders pay a $10 entrance fee, and are encouraged to solicit sponsorship from employers, friends and relatives. Prizes will be awarded to the rider who brings in the most dough! Through these donations, our community will be doing its part to help support local, independent artists and musicians and the incredible things they do.
We only have two bikes, which means spots are limited! Go to the link below to sign up today:
And of course we couldn’t do any of this without a Christmas tree! Big ups to Bellingham Pawn for donating the tree.
