A Mobile RV Transported by Bike
It was a hot summer evening as cargo bikes in all shapes and sizes wheeled in for Portland’s Cargo Bike Roll Call. It is typical to witness unique rides; however, this was one different. Attached to the bike by a steel pipe, this recreational vehicle is a concept designed and built by Alexander Main.
The Bike RV Project is a one-month experiment in which Alexander sleeps in his bike RV prototype and records his discoveries. An eBook and plans were published, free of charge, which reflect his original design, creating a crowd-sourced model and allowing anyone to access and improve.
Alexander and I sat down at a local food cart for a delectable Venezuelan lunch and spoke about the vision behind The Bike RV Project, discussing ideas for the next prototype. Tag along to learn about his exciting venture. It could be coming to a city near you!
