Okay. So you know by now that I like bicycles. A lot. I believe they are one of our most efficient machines, if not the most efficient. But, well..I don’t think I really want to leave the ground on one. Interestingly, the original plane at Kitty Hawk took flight using bicycle parts, and the Wright brothers were bicycle mechanics prior to building their plane. Anyhow, I recently came across this on Treehugger and thought it was interesting enough to share. Their actual site is located here, and their kickstarter page is located here. Take a look at the short video below. I’d be interested in hearing what others thought…could you take off on this thing?

Urban Simplicity.
