The Human Powered Vehicle

HPV-Milan
Milan – Tricycle holds 3 world records Β 

So, I have been thinking…it has been so cold and windy in Saskatchewan to really enjoy road cycling. Perhaps, it is time to rethink how I ride. A human-powered-vehicle (HPV), as depicted with a front wheel generator to power a portable car heater would do the trick. Throw in a hidden bottom bracket motor for the hills and I am set. I might even win a few Tuesday night time trials πŸ˜‰

    1. On a calm day a trained cyclist can travel over 55 km/hr in the little yellow beast, for a significant distance. What’s not to like? πŸ™‚
