Faster than a speeding locomotive? Maybe. (Trains don’t go very fast around here). Definitely faster than walking.
This is taking bike riding to a whole new level. Streamline, contained and a cute little light in the front. I wonder if it has a horn. I hope so. A bicycle bell wouldn’t cut it. A locomotive whistle would be cool. The rider could mount it right in front where they could toot long drawn out warnings when they get to cross roads.
