How can we get people to drive less and ride more? AutoVelo is designed for those accustomed to the comfort and convenience of driving. AutoVelo provides more convenient transportation for short distances and commuting.
AutoVelo mimics the automotive seating position, with identical seat height, back angle, hand and foot positions. Unlike most recumbent bikes, the rider is at eye level with traffic. The low-stepover frame makes entry/egress easy, and riders can easily put their feet down. AutoVelo is an ideal platform for electric cycling, with rear wheel motor and battery mounted neatly below the frame.
AutoVelo is a “Excellence Award Winner” in the 14th annual International Bicycle Design Competition at the 2010 Taipei Cycle Show.
