This adventure bike, called the Cercle, is designed for adventures on the road as an eco-friendly alternative to driving a car. The Cercle is a transformable bicycle and the brainchild of Bernhard Sobotta. Minimalist at its core, the transformable bike was conceived when Sobotta tried to combine a hammock with a bike frame. To do so, a fold-out aluminum day bed frame and a bike frame were combined to create the Cercle.
Versatile by nature, the adventure bicycle is engineered to allow the user to sit, cook, work, rest, and even sleep. Ideal for the 21st-century nomad, this bike leaves virtually no carbon footprint, allowing for an eco-friendly solo exploration. The bike's circular frame holds the foldable day bed stands at its center, which can be oriented for multiple functionalities.
