Well, process of elimination time.

Northern Hemisphere?

There's an airport and a small city directly north of the extinct(?) volcano... haven't been able to scare a name out of Google yet though.

Sorry took so long, left the computer, didn't think my answer was correct.

What I did was blow the image up, and noticed a runway just north of the large volcanic crater... so I did a Google search for "crater south of the airport" and got a single hit from a marathon fourm...

Anyway... Whasis?

Okay, I'll start with a wild guess. First, does it attach to something else or is that the whole thing?

Is it some kind of reel mechanism for an amusement park ride or for some kind of exercise equipment?

Well, I guess that covers it. It's almost too specific.

It is a folding bicycle.

DVICE: Foldable bicycle design has mysterious pedal assist tech
