Here’s a new weapon for fighting the child obesity problem in America—a pedal-powered school bus!
Designed by German-based bicycle builder De Cafe Racer, the bike puts the antsy little legs of 10 children to work alongside an adult who controls everything from the front. An auxiliary electric motor is available on standby, just in case the kids petering out.
Take a peek at other pedal-powered options for carting kids from cargo bike specialist WorkCycles in the slideshow below (though not all kiddie powered like the one above).
