Riding around town in the Sidekick, a homebrew pedal hybrid
In any case, the vehicle is called the Sidekick, and there are two videos from user Welmoed on YouTube showing the quadricycle in action. As Welmoed wrote on BoingBoing, "With the current gas prices, it's now our 'errand car' -- we use it for one-person errands within a 10 mile radius. It gets a lot of interesting looks!" One of the videos says the rider is Bob and he's going "through the Kentlands," so maybe this is Maryland we're talking about? In any case, it's good to see that DIY is alive and well and willing to get some strange looks as it drives along. See the Sidekick in action after the jump.
