I love the playfulness of inventions around the turn of the last century.
I'm not sure who was behind this random surge of sailing bikes in Ormond, Florida, but here is the photographic evidence that these vehicles existed.
This is such a simple idea, attach a sail to a wheeled vehicle and ride it at the beach.
I would love to try this out...but there is no way I would do it in a formal dress and hat!
