Introducing: the Legway

So as not to use the dreaded “S” word two times in a day, we’ll call this by its alternate name: the Legway, a step-powered vehicle. It’s actually a variation of the Universe Cycle, with handlebars. I’d love to see a video to see how wonky it is to drive. The builder says it’s not that hard and he’s gotten pretty good at it.

      No one said “steam,” I said “step,” “step-powered.”

    Finally, I can get to where I need to go by harnessing the power of walking!
