bicycles power the times square ball!!!

a new year's eve story from new york city where the times square ball will drop later on signalling the start of a new year in the eastern united states (and anywhere else looking on in that time zone). big deal right?! well this year the ball will be lit by energy stored from the efforts of a huge number of visitors to new york who mounted stationary bicycles that were attached to batteries designed to store that energy and release it later to power the ball. read more about it here

better hurry up boys!!

the last bit gets stuck on . . .
