What is BikeLab?

Orbis Institute launched in 2011 an innovative project BikeLab. Over the past year we have managed to implement over 70 installations. The largest installations were at the festival Pohoda 2014, Colours of Ostrava 2014 and others. The project is constantly expanding with new installations.



  • BikeLab serves as an platform for educational projects and projects using alternative energy.
  • BikeLab is also fundraising tool for non-profit activities of Orbis Institute, thanks to commercial usage of bicycles at various events.
  • Bicycles fixed in stands rotate the axis of electromotor. Produced energy is converted in cyclogenerator into stable usable electric current.
  • The advantage of BIKE LAB is its independence from energetic source and cycling attractiveness. We can generate enough electricity to supply sound system at concerts, run a cinema, laser show and many other installations.
