Bicycle film fests, DIY projects and sailing the Atlantic with a homemade boat…

TreeSean writes in with the weekly update on what’s going on at Treehugger – “a look at a bicycle-themed film festival. A site with DIY projects for everyone from beginners to pros. And, sailing the Atlantic in a DIY boat.”



The Fourth Annual ‘Filmed by Bike’ Get out your bike and your 8mm and start filming your masterpiece. Filmed by Bike, a film festival for those who want to join in a “celebration of bike culture around the world” will be held in Portland, Oregon on April 28. However, still have time to get your bicycle-only abridged version of “Apocalypse Now” in as an entry. The entry date for your under 10 minute movie is March 16th.


Supernaturale: Ultimate Guide to DIY It is easy to get lost in the plethora of projects at the DIY site Supernaturale.

For everything from crochet to podcasts, find it at Supernaturale.


World Cruising with a Small Footprint Ever dream of sailing the high seas? Well, Sebastian Naslund did, and he went through with it. He built a 14 foot “microcruiser” and sailed solo across the Atlantic and back. Not does the concept of a microcruiser make it feasible to build your own transaltantic voyager, it promotes transportation that leaves an incredibly small ecological footprint. In other words, we love it.


That is it for this time, look for more TreeHugger goodies next week.
