Video – Biking on a frozen lake?
What’s better than a nice ride on thin ice? Okay, maybe now a couple of other things come to mind that could be better, but if we really wanted to go for a nice bike ride on a frozen lake?
The brilliant (and slightly crazy) protagonist of the video had the idea of replacing the normal tires on his bicycle with huge wheels for circular saws, in order to being able to ride on ice too… and on some other material that I can’t think of right now. But – for sure – the bike ride on the ice is out of the question!
The construction of the ice bike
Like a perfect do-it-yourself ace, the inventor has taken over the whole complicated construction phase of this ice bike (the first of its kind, for what we know) – but you can skip to minute 4:27 if you just want to see the bike in action, including the first failed attempt: the circular saw blades (sorry – the bike wheels) cut the ice making the vehicle sink… brrr… and not just for the cold!
If, on the other hand, you love pedaling, but in a slightly more conventional way, here are some ideas for rejuvenating your bicycle fleet.
