Autonomous vehicles (AV) are often touted as being the transportation of the future. While the technology is still deeply questionable in its safety and efficacy, some network scientists, climate activists, and urban planners are convinced that AVs do not hold the key to futuristic travel, at least in cities. Instead, the simple manual—or not so simple electric—bicycle is the key to sustainable cities with less congestion and increased mobility.

Engineer Sergii Gordieiev has not been idle since his last bicycle project.
Since their invention, bicycles have been a staple of modern living. And while you may have seen electric bikes and tandem bikes, you probably haven't seen one with wheels that have been split in half.

The innovative daredevil decided to replace his bicycle wheels with circular sawmill blades so that he could ride on the ice.
