Conference bikes or similar
« on: February 27, 2020, 06:47:58 am »
Here in sunny Bognor Regis, there's a little train thing that goes up & down parts of the promenade giving people a ride.  During a chat with one of my councillors recently, I suggested that it would be great to have something like a conference bike during the summer. 

Apart from the official CoBi conference bike from the Netherlands which is €11,750, does anyone know of any similar, wacky, multi-user pedal powered vehicles?

There are those beer bikes, also from the Netherlands(?) that were banned from Amsterdam a while back because they were leaving a trail of urine behind.

I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

A several of delta recumbent trikes, coupled together in a train.  I think the record is a couple of hundred, but half a dozen should be a bit more manageable.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

I'd talk to Mickle at Get Cycling in York. https://www.getcycling.org.uk/

They've had several conference bikes and ZEMs (Zero Emission Machine), which is 4 seater car layout.
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is...
