Yet more ways of torturing yourself - # 08/254

I couldn't believe my eyes. This tricycle thingy has no visible means of propulsion. It appears that you drive it forward by making strenuous undulatory movements of your body that rock the footplates from side to side. Looks like far too much hard work to me. Has anyone else seen these exercise toys? How much do they cost?


  1. Roon, we don't need to know how much they cost because you and I have no intention of getting on one and risking life and limb! It's a great shot though. Looks like some antique contraption to me.

  2. I've seen similar things for children, but you sit on them and propel them by wiggling the handlebars. This looks like a lot more work.

    It's lucky this person was dressed to fit in so well with the surroundings! Great fall colours.

  3. Phew! That looks quite funny actually! But then its been very well captured!



  4. I believe it would be wiser if you just take some nice normal walks! Cheaper and safer!

  5. Yes, I actually have seen some of these. I've always wondered where they came from, as I've never seen any in stores. Though, to be fair, I've never actually gone looking for them.

  6. I have not seen any thing like this. I think he needs a hardhat.
