Well since this thread is about alternate bikes, i guess this is where my new bike belongs, as it really is "alternate", who needs a hummer when you have one of these, goes on water, goes on ice, goes everywhere, and all human/pedal powered

It has a pedal powered propellar for the water sections to, a tandem, sociable, recumbent, amphibious 4 wheeled "alternate" HPV

(i havent worked out how to post pics yet so sorry about the hyperlink!!

We have a pedal powered propellar attached, via a gearbox to both our bottom brackets. And 2 inflatable cataraft tubes, which are 18ft long with 600kg of bouyancy. And we will be steering with our handlebars attached to a rudder

more pics and videos will be posted up on the site soon, so you will be able to see it in operation(hard to picture in your head)

thanks
