Lifeguard-Inspired Concept Bikes
The Sharpshooter Rescue Bicycle Features a Built-In Winch

Lifeguards aren’t necessarily known to ride bicycles, but that could all change thanks to the Sharpshooter Rescue Bicycle, an electric bicycle designed to be used primarily by lifeguards. The bike has a flotation device that can be shot towards a drowning victim and retracted via a winch.

The bicycle is an eco-friendly way for lifeguards to quickly respond to a person in need of assistance. The idea of a bike designed to be used by lifeguards may seem like a bit of a stretch, but I could actually see it working. Lifeguard departments are notoriously underfunded in many beach towns (at least in San Diego). A cheaper alternative to expensive ATVs and trucks such as the Sharpshooter Rescue Bicycle could mean a bigger budget, which would mean more lifeguards on staff.
