Cycle touring experience preferred along with the ability to undertake new challenge and come away a winner.
The Rowbike is a like a rowing machine with wheels on it. A cutting edge concept for getting a full body workout, the Rowbike was invented by Rollerblade inventor Scott Olson and is easily learned and an incredible joy to rode. Outfitted with seven gears and made of many high quality bike components, the Rowbike was ridden from Florida to Maine in 20 days. Which is to say that if you can ride one from San Francisco or Pittsburgh to our Chicago NBG Fest on July 30, the bike as well is yours to keep!!
