Getting There

Is this the electric bike for Spokane winters?

Mikael Kjellman, a Swedish design engineer and bike guy, built a little car/bike/electric vehicle. 

It's called the PodRide.

Now, I'm not saying this bike is the greatest thing ever, but look how cute it is. And its turn radius. And its little electric heater. I'm just saying that I would totally ride this on the Centennial Trail in January. 

See? And here's a video of it on dirt jumps.

Thanks to the Spokane Regional Transportation Council's blog for sharing this. And thanks to Pee-wee Herman for sharing it too.
