A circular, 7-person bike? You’re joking!
It’s no joke; the Conference Bike is a revolutionary way to bring people together. The CoBi-7 is pedaled by seven (7) riders sitting in a circle. One person steers while the other six (6) pedal (or not) as the bike moves effortlessly along. More than 300 CoBies are now being enjoyed by a wide variety of groups in 18 countries. It is a tour bike in Berlin, Baltimore and San Francisco; a tool for corporate team-building in Copenhagen and San Diego, a way for blind people to bike in Dublin and Florida.
They have been used for fundraising events and by biking advocacy groups worldwide. CoBies are being used to transport employees on the Google campus in California; and as ice-breakers at Vincennes, Stony Brook and Alfred Universities. Every group you can think of can use a ‘CoBi’ as a tool and a symbol for bringing people together.
Originally conceived as an artwork by internationally recognized artist/inventor Eric Staller, the CoBi makes every owner/operator feel like an artist; behind the wheel of this bike you see the joy that you are bringing to people. If you are headed to one of these destinations for your next conference, definitely add this to your activity list!
