Comments Off on Flussbad Berlin Wants to Build an Enormous Natural Swimming Pool in the City’s River

Nonprofit Flussbad Berlin has proposed a remarkable brownfield rejuvenation project for the center of Berlin: transforming an underutilized canal into an enormous outdoor natural swimming pool for summer recreation. And in winter, the pool would serve double duty as a skate rink. The canal, which flows along one side of the city’s UNESCO heritage-listed Museum Island, would be filtered by gravel beds to ensure public health and safety in the water, and the natural swimming pool , known as a Flussbad, would be a whopping 750 meters in length.

Comments Off on 4StrikeBike Can Be Pedalled With Hands and Feet at the Same Time

The 4StrikeBike features handlebars that double as an extra set of pedals! Designed by Dutch firm TSG Essempio , the bike is a real treat for passionate cyclists, people with back problems and compulsive multi-taskers. The hand pedals can be fixed upright when navigating city traffic or engaged to provide extra power when crossing longer distances at higher speeds. Retired Dutch surgeon Lex van Stekelenburg came up with the idea after developing back problems. The bike works therapeutically by distributing body weight more naturally than a conventional bicycle.
