eric stoddard: autovelo

the autovelo is american designer eric stoddard’s proposal to encourage car drivers to use pedal-powered transportation. the bike is specifically designed for rider’s seeking the comfort and convenience of driving a car. the bike opts for a seat over a saddle and also carries over the foot and hand positions from the car. a small electric engine allows users to sit back and enjoy the ride without all the work. however there are pedals for times when you don’t mind putting in the effort. there is a single suspension below the seat to smooth out any bumps. to make riding the bike even more familiar to drivers, the seat height is in line with a typical SUV so drivers and riders meet eye to eye.
