Yesterday, Saturday, I went to the Migros supermarket to buy coffee (local markets do not open on Sunday) and ran into this mode of transportation, parked outside. I took pictures of it. As I was leaving, the driver appeared. It is basically a tricycle. According to the US manufacturer, it goes up to 20 MPH, and it’s totally human-powered! An electrical supplemental option is available. It does move fast. It did attract many curious viewers because it is rare. Notice how the older woman at the end of the video is startled by it! The vehicles are built in the US, Holland and Germany. Super cute. They sell for around $11K. So…
If you are thinking about what to get me for the holidays…
