A new prototype farm bike is undergoing trials to replace the traditional tractor and are said to be going well.
Designed to appeal to the Green lobby this pedal powered tractor is currently being tested on the uplands of North Yorkshire. Totally reliant on human combustion it will make many traditional farming activities performed by diesel guzzling tractors obsolete.
Said local farmer Walter Hutton, “I would never have thought it possible but the local topography of the Dales makes these new machines great to use. You fair whizz down the valley sides and before you know it and in no time at all you’re back up t’other side at the top again.”
Two seater and multi seated versions will follow soon allowing heavier farm machinery to be used and a ‘sky bike’ version for seeding the clouds with rain is also on the drawing board.
