I wanna be a Shweeb Dweeb

29 08 2010

Yet another cool idea at the design intersection of bikes and public transport. It’s a Shweeb. It is a suspended, enclosed recumbant bike dangling from an overhead monorail. And in all the world the prototype is in Rotorua. It’s set up as one of those tourist town attractions, read Zorb or the Luge. But it goes 50km/hr 5 metres off the ground and you can race someone you love. I feel a trip to Smellytown coming on.
