Three cyclists start the solar revolution!
Today, on EU Solar Day (15 May 2009), a team of three solar campaigners left London's City Hall to cycle around the world powered by the sun!
Susie Wheeldon, Jamie Vining and Iain Henderson make up The Solar Cycle Diaries. An around-the-world cycle trip aimed at raising awareness of solar as a solution to climate change, the world's energy needs and the fight against poverty. The team will be raising money for SolarAid and their target is an impressive £30,000.
Thin film solar panels on their panniers will power the team's communications equipment enabling them to update their blogs and upload photos regularly.
There are many ways you can follow the team's progress. Read their blog, following them on Twitter or read SolarAid's updates right here on latest news.
Please support them on their massive venture and support SolarAid at the same time.
The SolarAid team wish the intrepid travellers the very best of luck
