Check out these upright 'water cycles' apparently available for rent in Venice, Italy.
I can't find anything about these bike boats on the web -- has anybody seen something like this before? I'm curious how these are propelled -- what's the connection between the pedals and the paddle or propeller?
IMPORTANT: Please post comments for this article at the new CYCLELICIOUS 2.0 version of this page.
We had one while in Houston. It was more like a longboard or wave board. It had like the picture, the bike seat and pedals, with a propeller on the back. The kids loved it.
Here it is: http://www.shuttlebike.com/ It attaches to a standard mountain bike, and breaks down to fit into a backpack. It looks good in the videos, and the fact that they are still in business 8 years after I first heard of them says something about the product. I believe that there is even a US distributor. Val
