Celebrating Human Ingenuity for Earth Day: The Air Powered Motorcycle

airpoweredbike.jpg Happy Earth Day! Of course, every day is Earth Day, and here at Really Natural, we want to celebrate individual human ingenuity at solving the climate crisis on this special day. We've told you about the 16-year-old that converted his truck to an EV and the revolutionary car that runs on compressed air, now Jem Stansfield, a University of Bristol graduate with a degree in aeronautics, created a bike that runs on air. By strapping two high-pressure tanks onto the side of his Puch moped, Jem created this moped in his garage that has a top speed of 18 mph and travels seven miles before the compressed air runs out.
