Bird of Prey Bike: Ride like an Eagle

The way we ride bikes now is to just sit there, peddling, hunched forward. When you think about it, it’s kind of unnatural. If this Bird of Prey bike takes off, people will be riding bikes in a whole new way though.

This bicycle has its riders leaning all the way forward, legs stretched out, flying more than riding. Your hips and elbows are fully supported with leather pads. The position apparently has some advantages, like increased agility through a lower center of gravity, an improved aerodynamic profile, and increased power production.

This bike was created by California-based architect John Aldridge. It’s been in the works since 1991, and now it is time for it to soar. Right now it costs $4,200(USD), but hopefully the price will drop if it catches on.
