This morning I read on MAKE Magazine about the Busycle:

Called the Busycle, this bicycle behemoth moves under the power of 28 human legs, plus a driver. And while it can only go about 4 miles per hour, the infectious camaraderie of its passenger power-train just might make it exhilarating.

This looks like a fun idea. I’ve seen bicycle taxis downcity in the warmer months; wouldn’t this be a neat addition?
