Copenhagen Wheel

When we heard this story on OPB today, we couldn’t resist sharing it with you.

The Copenhagen wheel is an innovative new powered wheel that aims to make it easier for people to try biking. The wheel debuted at the UN Climate Conference in Copenhagen in 2009. Copenhagen is a bike-friendly city, but “planners there wanted something that could get even more people riding. That’s where MIT came in. The answer was a self-contained, lithium-ion battery-powered motor in the rear wheel.”

    Awesome. I like hearing about projects that will get more people cycling. This wheel seems like a smart solution.

    I just stumbled over here from PRI’s tweet about this article. You’re covering important topics, wish we had this here in Austin. But we don’t have to think about rain. You have so much rain!
