This Bicycle Has Wheels Made of Ice

Colin Furze is the insane British inventor who makes vehicles that you’ve never heard of, but we all need. For example, he souped up a mobility scooter so that it goes 50 miles an hour. He also added rockets to a bicycle and an engine to a baby stroller. And when he’s not revolutionizing transportation, he’s building pneumatic Wolverine claws and sheet metal balloons.

For his latest project, Furze built ice tires for a bicycle. That’s right: wrapped around those wheel rims are blocks of solid ice.

He rode his ice bike around down, up and down hills, and on an ice rink. To take the ice bike back to its native environment, Furze even rode it over a glacier.

Ice tires have an advantage that rubber tires don’t: you can chip off bits and use them to cool your drinks. And after riding that ice bike over hot, dusty roads, drinking those tires sounds like a refreshing idea.
