‘This Way' Recumbent Bicycle Is Strictly For Fair Weather Riders

Recumbent bikes have big old wide seats and riders lie back like in a recliner chair: but if your knees are shot, it's a great alternative to a normal bicycle.

“This Way” is a concept from Torkel Dohmers and is built of flax fiber and carbon fiber with a solar roof, both for the electrical assist power and to keep the bird poop off your head.

Implications - The bike comes equipped with LED lights and a "luggage connector" that lets you store your items safely. The idea was to create a bike that car drivers would be interested in. The shape even looks similar to a car even though it is much smaller.
