Riding a bike is fun. Mowing the lawn is not. And using a bike-powered lawn mower is such a strange idea that it’s got to be entertaining (as long as you don’t fall off).
One such bike mower has been developed by Catonsville resident Jason Mah, as the Baltimore Sun reports. Mah attached a push reel mower to his mountain bike using a custom-made arm; a 10-pound sandbag serves as ballast.
All told, it takes about 45 minutes — and zero gallons of gasoline — for Mah to mow his front and back yards. “It’s a pretty strenuous workout,” he told the Sun. “It’s a lot of fun, and it’s great when you have an idea that you can materialize.” Want to materialize your own bikeable lawnmower? You can find some tips here and here. Take that, John Deere!
