Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Just something fun to make, I suppose, because there doesn't seem to be any practical advantage to such a contraption.

Or, as some would say, a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.
