The Minnesota Independent has a video about the F30 Pedal Cloud, a bike powered by 11 people, and part of The UnConvention, sponsored by Forecast Public Art:

While the bike had made appearances at events from the May Day Parade to Pride, its inspiration is less… summery: Last winter, out on the ice of Medicine Lake, Forecast director Jack Becker encountered its ancestor. As part of the Soap Factory’s Art Shanty Projects, in which artists reinvent the traditional icefishing house, a group of artists had built an art shanty on wheels. Over five weeks, the six-person, pedal-powered ice shack had racked up some 200 miles. And Becker knew he’d found his project.
