An AT-AT Walker Built for Two (The Empire Strikes Bike)

by Conner Flynn

Is that an AT-AT walker riding a bike? Times must be tough for the Empire. Maybe AT-AT walkers have run out of energy since the battle on Hoth. Actually this is a people powered AT-AT. Fully articulated by pedal-power.

There’s also a video of the AT-AT bikers in action at the Star Wars vs. Star Trek Pedalpalooza 2012 event in Portland that took place last weekend. If you’ve never heard of Pedalpalooza, it is 3+ weeks of bicycling, with over 293 events this year.

It sounds like fun, but looks awfully difficult to ride. If you want to try it for yourself, you just need a bicycle built for two and an AT-AT costume that you both can wear. I’m sure you’ve got both of those lying around, right? I’d love see a ton of these riding down the street toward other bicyclists wearing turrets and Snow Speeders.

    “The Empire Strikes Bike”? Really? When “The Empire Bikes Back” flows of the tongue so much more smoothly?
