Of course we ALL would rather PEDDLE, but what fun it might be to *coast* along @ 30 mph...! :-)

    I forwarded this to my boyfriend, who is the sailing coach for Tufts University, asking him if this would be his next set of wheels. He responded:

"Hard to get steady winds anywhere but an oceanside boardwalk. The pedals would help in town but trees and wires are another problem as are bridges :("

Oh well - still seems like fun!

    I've seen those before. VERY COOL !! There was a company here in America a couple years ago that was building them and was going to demo them by sailing across the country, but after a few posts, they stopped posting and I never found out what happened. Too bad. Looks like fun !

    I wouldn't have enough wind here to matter. But I would like a bike with a small motor for going up hills, and then I could pedal the rest of the way. I've read that hills are the reason most people dislike bikes, so the small motor is useful.

    Cool looking. But I would rather get my miles by peddling and not Sailing.
