Synopsis
 
The HandleBards' tour of Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors - by bicycle - won the 2014 Award for Sustainable Practice at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Selected for their exemplary touring efforts, sustainable set design, and high quality performance, The HandleBards are a four-man, cycle powered, touring Shakespeare company. This year, they cycled over 2000 miles to perform in almost 50 venues across the United Kingdom.

Set and props used in the productions are restricted only to items that could be found either on a bicycle or in a campsite, with the team's bikes rigged up to power various mechanical contraptions onstage. The use of bicycles as transport for the escapade will also save 45.6 tonnes of CO2 emissions, as compared to the same adventure undertaken by car.
