Pedal-Powered School Bus

Bicycle School Bus

Here’s a new weapon for fighting the child obesity problem in America—a pedal-powered school bus!

Bicycle 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.
