The Charge Cycle

The Charge Cycle at Zuccotti Park

The Charge Cycle is a system of bikes equipped with human powered phone chargers. The charging stations are sponsored by individuals, bike shops, and organizations.

A bike is equipped with a dynamo, a usb charging dock, and a stand. The rider generates electricity to charge a cell phone. When the bike is locked up, it becomes a phone charging station for the general public to use by rotating down the stand to make the bike stationary.

A web based phone application allows The Charge Cycle locations to be updated providing the public a means to search for a nearby charging station.
