The Row & Roll
He claimed it could produce speeds over 100 kmh. The bike which is ridden in the recumbent position, uses a telescopic rod to move mechanisms for steering while transfering energy to the rear wheel. The invention did not win. The panel did not appear to consider it very practical. However shouldn't more credit should go to people who are prepared to experiment with alternatives to motorized transport? Maybe the New Inventors could have a special category for inventions that address the problems of global warming?
As far as the Row and Roll is concerned, I'd give it a go.
Confined to house all I have to blog about is what I saw on TV!
