Thank you all for bothering to reply and with such valid and helpful answers.
Obviously I'm very ignorant on this whole topic and just threw out a brainstorming idea for suggestions. Appreciate nobody giving condescending answers.
I take on board the point that the weight/bulk of the equipment needed to renew my energy wouldn't equate with lugging it about.
I understand the point about avoiding as much technology when 'going out into the great outdoors', however we're all guilty of that, unless we go naked and live off the land. Even the jackets we're wearing are now high tech.
I just wanted something which would allow me to take some 'luxuries' which packpacking doesn't really afford once you've stacked up with food supplies, but without really creating any noise pollution and was legal. I wanted just a boost for some of the hills, whilst free cycling most of the time.....I'm no spring chicken now.
I think I may just have to make a compromise for the time being and plan my route to go off for a couple of days being economic with my electric power and break up the trip by conveniently sneaking off to the nearest village to have a recharge. I know, that's cheating, but that'll have to be the situation for now. Here in the UK we don't really have vast wilderness places anyway.
Perhaps in the future we'll have super lightweight rods which we can plug into the ether or ground to re-charge. I'm sure this 'free' energy is already available and we 'the profane' are fed obsolete technology.
