EMBARKING UPON A NEW JOURNEY
A video showing the progress of my solar powered tricycle project. The aim is to be able to ride carrying a load for both short commuting and long range travel. The idea is to have a a simple, economical, sustainable and reliable source of 'green' transport that can be used for various tasks and not limited to the lightweight use commonly associated with a bicycle.
- Sleeping pod is completed, being stocked with supplies and testing for weight.
- Ready to travel and test the tricycle long distance.
UPDATES August 2018:
- Successful journey of 500 miles to the south coast and back.
- Chain and brakes were not capable of withstanding the weight that I was towing and had to be constantly maintained to ensure it was safe to ride.
- Proved that the concept works and when I have the funds I will invest in a lighter simpler design that does not have any of the flaws experienced on this trip.

Follow Richard's endeavours towards self-sustainability in a natural environment as he ventures into RAW goat milk as a form of sustenance while foraging and hunting where possible.
His goats are free range amongst plenty of abundant wild forage giving the milk he collects that special vibrant touch that makes it a potent elixir for life in all its high-butterfat goodness.
Poetry and Writing
You LIVE; You LEARN; You EXPERIENCE; You BECOME;
And what you live is the path that you chose
And what you learn is what you choose to believe
And what you experience is what you choose to see
And what you become is who you choose to be…
And thus, heed my words of simple advice
That life is not bound by rope, or a vice
You are free to choose – so choose at will!
And become your dreams, your wishes, and thrills;
Simply believe; - Richard Mawby
