New Flying Bicycle Soars In the Sky
A new bicycle can soar over 4,000 feet above the ground. The project which is not yet a reality and merely a Kickstarter campaign has raised roughly 50,000 British Pounds so far. The designers Yannick Read and John Foden are helming the project.
“We wanted to make something that was accessible and brought together both our passions for cycling and flying. And basically wanted something that we could ride and fly out of our backyard,” Foden said in the Kickstarter campaign’s video.
Only 16% of the funding goal has yet to have been reached but the designers are optimistic that their goal could be achieved. They built a non flying version of the prototype that reportedly cost $16,000. The image above is photoshopped and not an actual bike flight.
