Human Powered Vehicle Speed Test in Battle Mountain NV (1 Viewer)

Aug 22, 2011
Westernville, NY

These guys are going to be meeting up and doing a speed run through the high desert in NV in a week or so. They've had fairing-covered recumbent bikes do 70+mph there before, entirely powered by the human body. I'm moving too slow to make it there in time unfortunately, but if anyone else wants to go and do a write-up about it, I'll buy you a twelve pack whenever I see ya next.

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $30.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $30.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $30.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $30.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
