An overhaul of the design of the traditional bike uses step-power to propel itself.

Developed by a team called the Walking Bicycle Club, the Walking Bicycle is exactly what its name suggests – it's a bicycle that is powered by a walking motion instead of pedaling.

The Walking Bicycle is faster and more convenient than walking, but easier than riding a conventional bicycle. The bike is like an elliptical cross trainer with wheels and has an auxiliary speed range of up to 24 km per hour. The bike has a DC24V electric motor that can be used to assist the rider at all times or can be used primarily for those difficult uphill rides. The bicycle runs on a rechargeable lithium ion battery that has a charging time of two hours and is capable of a 20-km mileage on a single charge.
