Recumbent “Air” Bike

This is pretty cool.  I was going to the gym today and saw this cycling/blowing through the parking lot.  The gentleman built it himself.  It’s an 18 speed recumbent bike with a lawn mower engine that drives a small airboat like fan.  He was cycling through the parking lot at about 12mph without using the pedals.  That is pretty impressive considering the weight of the bike.  You can still use the pedals like a normal bike so you can go even faster. He said he has hit 30-40 mph on the bike before.  


  1. That's pretty cool. Looks like something I would build wen I retire.

  2. @CB - Instead you would put an air boat motor and fan on it and "permanently retire".
