What is a "sideways bike"?
The sideways bike is an invention by Michael Killian, a software engineer from Dublin. He was inspired by the way that snowboarding is preferred to skiing due to the greater artistic potential, and decided to design a snowboard equivalent for the conventional bicycle. The result: a bike ridden sideways with the rider operating both wheels. The bike, unlike a conventional bike, uses front-to-back balance like a snowboard. Conventional bikes use left-to-right balance, like skis. This article is licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License. It uses material from the Wikipedia article "Sideways bike".
