Daily Photo

Check out this bicycle...I saw it at the Rosewood Dr. Annual Crawfish Festival...It looks to be  made out of 2-1x6 treated wooden boards and some bicycle wheels and parts...I just looked it up and it is called a Recumbent Bicycle...This must be his own design...The rider's weight is distributed more evenly over the bike's frame than a regular two weeler...Your buttocks rest on a flat seat as opposed to a normal bike seat...The original bike made in France  holds the speed record for two wheelers (close to 50 mph)... It was outlawed from "normal" bike racing in 1934...check it out on Wikipedia...
