These Aren't Your Ordinary Bikes!

By February 8, 2013

Tandem bicycle loaded for touring.If you're curious about alternative styles of bicycles, the International Bicycle Fund has compiled a comprehensive list of manufacturers from around the world who focus on atypical types of bicycles, ranging from handbikes to recumbents to cargo bikes and more.

It's amazing to me just how many manufacturers there are out there for all these off-beat bikes.  For instance, over 70 companies are included in the recumbent bike category, each containing a link to the respective manufacturer's website.

The International Bike Fund is a "non-governmental, nonprofit, advocacy organization, providing information and resources promoting sustainable transport and international understanding to make this planet a healthier and happier place to live."  Its major areas of activity include non-motorized urban planning, economic development, bike safety education, responsible travel and bicycle tourism, and cross-cultural, educational programs.
