Cyclerowing?

Okay I was rollerblading on the paved trail today (I alternate between that and road biking) and I saw this guy on a row-bike. It was a cross between a rowing machine and a bicyle. I had never seen anything of the sort. He was just tooling along and had a friend on a regular bike pacing him. As he pulled back on the "paddles" he would propel himself.

Has anyone seen a bike like this before? It would be interesting to know where you could find such a contraption and how much it costs...

Hmmm...this is the first I've heard of such a bicycle. Interesting.

You may want to look into bikes for disabled people--there are a few small companies that make bikes for people who can't use their legs. The ones I've seen look like a recumbant bike, with the cranks up where the handlebar would be. The pedals were replaced with hand grips, and you would "pedal" with your hands. I rode one of these once and found it very tiring on my skinny biker arms. Anyway, I could see a "row-bike" being marketed for the same purpose.

I have seen them before, but I don't think I'd use one for my commuting.

Inuk: Thanks!

Nv: Yeah I haven't thougth of the application for handicapped. He didn't have to do anything with his legs, and that might explain is friend to help him get on and off the thing. That's a definite possibility.

Yeah I could use some work on my skinny biker arms too.

I agree, that's the only thing I could think of when it comes to that. Maybe he built it. That is the best way to go ;)
