Pedalometer

Pedalometer and utility box
Fun, accurate, motivating, and visible from anywhere in the venue.

The 4′ tall Pedalometer is an amazing help at Pedal Powered Stage events. This precisely calibrated system uses color-coded LED lights to display pedaling effort. Different colored sections correspond to dangerously low, dangerously high, and ‘sweet spot’ voltages. Your sound engineer and audience will know it’s time to kick up the pedaling when the LEDs blink red, or to cruise when white.

Pedalometer @ Climate Rally

Compatible with all Rock the Bike Pedal Power Utility Boxes and can be made to work with a Pedal Power Stage of your making. As part of a Pedal Power Stage purchase, it will be calibrated to your gear. If you already own the Pedal Power Stage, we’ll ask you a few questions about your gear to ensure it is calibrated (please call 1-888-354-BIKE).

  • Many thanks San Francisco Bicycle Music Festival: World's largest Human Powered Music Fest.

     

    The 6th Annual San Francisco Bicycle Music Festival was our biggest ever and a milestone for our grassroots Human Powered Music Fest. Many thanks to the bands, fans, and our huge volunteer crew. Any one of the 3 phases of the day would have been epic enough. But we had a beautiful, idyllic daytime music festival in the park, an outrageous mobile party, and a post-modern urban block party all in one day. Daytime: 500+ people in a meadow, enjoying live music in the beautiful sunshine… Followed by a fire-truck dodging, freeway underpass screaming, Fossil Fooling LiveOnBike session, with captain Ariel using no electric assist to pull 3 performers and audio gear weighing 250 pounds on our Mobile Stage… Followed by a street party with an elevated stage,  a glowing Bike Tree, and a 3-person pedal powered stage lighting system.

    We had 19 pedalers at the peak in Golden Gate Park! Plenty of power for our 10000-Watt sound system to run. In the distance you can see our Pedal Powered Line Array hanging from its bamboo tripod.
     
    We mobilized the entire festival on an outrageous LiveOnBike ride with yours truly, Fossil Fool, the Bike Rapper, performing with two bandmates on an elevated Mobile Stage towed by a Mundo. Above: the view from the Mobile Stage.

  • Pedal Powered Stage Gear

    This is the gear we use at our own Pedal Powered Stage events, including the San Francisco Bicycle Music Festival.

     

    A Pedal Powered Stage is a system that must include ALL of the following:

    The following elements are optional:

    • staging
    • lighting

    Creating a system yourself can be a great team-building experience but has a serious learning curve. Working with Rock The Bike will get you up and running much more quickly and with higher quality components. You’ll be able to put your focus on organizing events much sooner.

    Let our experience work for you. We’ve been Pedal Powering music events since 2007.  This will translate to less frustration and more empowering moments when you use our gear at your events.

    We would be happy to assist you in customizing a quote for your Pedal Powered Stage. Please note that the items in this category are often made to order. Please help us help you by giving us enough time to do our best work.
