I’m part of a fantastic crew of makers out of West Oakland who are building a 10’x 10′ human powered “hamster wheel” styled rail-car for the Handcar Regatta. The Regatta it this Sunday and you’re readers should hear about it.

From the looks of the above seen “contraption”, the Handcar Regatta is shaping up to be quite the vehicular spectacle! – The Lumbering Contraption
