The PodRide is the half car, half bike invention of cycle-enthusiast Mikael Kjellman, and it is awesome.
With no car, Kjellman needs his bike to get from point A to point B. Winter conditions caused a bit of a struggle for his traditional two-wheeled bicycle, so he created a solution – PodRide.
If you think this is just a bike with a tent around it, think again. The PodRide has a comfy seat, headlights, windshield wiper and even a turn signal, making it street-legal in most countries.
Because he included an electric bicycle (e-bike) kit, power is generated when a person pedals. The range of the bike is about 37 miles and top speed is about 15 miles per hour.
In his design, he added the ability to store groceries and other smaller things in the trunk, and even hook up a small cart to tow around for additional storage.
We seriously can’t stop watching Kjellman zip around in this impossibly adorable 4-wheeled bike.
Are you a bike enthusiast and want to ride in all types of weather? Or just want to give up your gas guzzler for a zippy, tiny pedal wagon? You might be in luck.
Kjellman is trying to take his design to market. If you’d like to help Kjellman get this practical and fun bicycle-car rolling, he has started a campaign on Indiegogo to raise funds.
