Anybody that finds inner-city goings a hassle will be with me in hoping Frag Woodall's entry for the 2007 Australian Design Awards becomes a commercial reality.

The Everglide is a bike that has the ability to be packed into a backpack, wheeled like a suitcase, or ridden like a regular bicycle.

This innovative bike is aimed at tackling the problem of short-distance travel. Because of its compact size and lightweight materials it can be used in conjunction with public transport, without causing problems at peak-hour.

If this isn't enough, your phones or ipod can recharge whilst you're riding, using frictionless magnetic dynamo technology. The Everglide will make trips out of the office a breeze, whilst promoting a healthy body and a planet.
