Cycling towards cleaner energy resources

Wednesday, 05 April, 2006

Six young Australians are circumnavigating the continent powered only by pedal power (bicycles) and a van powered by vegetable oil.

Pedal Australia for Clean Energy (PACE) is promoting sustainable energy and transport, and educating young people about climate change as they cycle seventy kilometres a day across Australia.

PACE Cyclist Melanie Szydzik says "Climate change is a reality, and the impacts on communities and ecosystems will be catastrophic. This is our future - we must create a world that is based on renewable, sustainable energy."

"PACE will demonstrate practical ways people can reduce their contribution to climate change, such as cycling and purchasing Green Power for their homes."

With a large and colourful fleet of cyclists, PACE plans to complete its journey in a year, having started out from St Kilda, Melbourne.
