The Circle City Bicycles blog contains info on bicycles, cycling events, pro racing, bicycle touring, and just about anything else cycling related. Since our bike shop is located in Indianapolis, we focus on biking in the Midwest, but cycling fans anywhere in the world should find this blog interesting. We try to post daily Monday through Friday, but we occasionally miss a day. Each Friday we try to have an interesting bicycle related photo.
Our featured video this week is "TU Buscycle - The Human Powered Bus". It is the creation of the Sustainable Research Unit at Tokyo University. It weighs a couple tons and can seat up to 20 passengers, who have to pedal to drive the vehicle forward at speeds up to 12 miles per hour. It requires at least four people pedaling to move the bus. I don't know what they do when they're down to only three people on the bus. The video runs for one minute and fifty-six seconds.
