The Shweeb: A Monorail Powered By You


If you thought bike lanes in the sky were cool, chances are you’ll be really psyched about the Shweeb, the world’s first human-powered monorail.

Shweeb riders can reach speeds up to 20 mph using less energy than it takes to walk!

You can pedal a Schweeb for yourself at the Agrodome amusement park in New Zealand, or just watch the video below to see it in action:
