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

What are these?

I can't tell if that's funky wheels or camera distortion.

That looks like what is known commonly as a bicycle.

Judging from the clunky looking fork, overspoked wheels, platform pedals and unknown brand I'd say it could be bought at a big-box discount house new for about $180.
