Bike Powered Christmas Tree

Dundee Christmas 2021: Bike Powered Christmas Tree

Hundreds of people turned out to each have their turn of powering Dundee’s Christmas Tree using our Pedal Pods. The tree looked very impressive and was the first time the city has used an existing ‘living’ Christmas tree. The main tree used for the season is in the city’s Steeple Church gardens. This tree was chosen to replace cutting down and importing a tree, meaning it will thrive for years to come!

There were four energy generating bikes used for this event, suitable for ages 2 to 102! Each bike powered their own section of the tree with more than 6,200 LED lights. Even in the daylight there was a small queue of smiling faces waiting in line to try it out. The lights were happily twinkling away in broad daylight but really lit up the city as night fell over the weekend!

We were honoured to be part of the bike powered Christmas tree project promoting sustainability during the festive season. The message for the weekend also promoted cycling and for a more thoughtful approach to energy consumption over the Christmas period.
