About Those Flying Bikes… The Paravelo


Flying bikes have been in the news recently, with the latest more like a quadcopter with a bike attached than any sort of airplane. Perhaps a bit more true to the form comes the Paravelo by Yannick Read (featured in Urban Velo #37). Some two years in the making, the Paravelo is a docking trailer and bicycle with an ultralight, bio-fueled powered paraglider attached for the ultimate adventurer. It is even planned ot feature it’s own lightweight tent, for overnight flying-biking stopovers of course. Check out more details at the Paravelo Kickstarter.

This is a brand new type of ultra-light aircraft – the combination of a para wing and conventional bicycle we call paravelo.

The paravelo is aimed at those who have a thirst for adventure, but are without, perhaps, the storage space or bank balance to accommodate a helicopter.

As well suited to someone living in London as Mojave, we believe the paravelo can transform the way we travel for work, leisure and adventure.

    This is not a new idea.
