I get a lot of interesting things sent to me in the mail, so I’ve been thinking about doing a ‘Mailbag’ column for a long time. Here’s the first installment.
A company from Naples, Florida emailed about a new product called “Walk A Bike: The Bicycle Wrist Steering Strap.” Check out the graphic at right and then read the description below:
“This new product positions the walker a safe distance to the rear of the bicycle making it easy to walk or jog long distances with the bicycle at his/her side without tripping on the pedal. When you reach your maximum walking/jogging distance, just bicycle back. Adding bicycling to your walking fitness program provides a more diverse exercising routine.”
According to a video available on their website, it also works well for toddlers and you can even negotiate winding paths with just a flick of wrist:
I’m all for making it easier for folks to exercise and the more bikes can be part of that the better… but a strap? To walk your bike?
