Getting around.

Not, of course, as yet available in the US, and if it were, I would be willing to bet that Medicare wouldn’t give it the time of day, but I still want one. The Firely, by Rollick. They also make a handcycle attachement, and lever drive system that I also covet. Checkout the video:

Cool, eh? I’ll have to look into what is required to become an importer!

One of my new favorite songs. These Playing for Change videos never fail, for some reason, to choke me up. Best part: the little girl dancing at about 6:15.

Keep in touch!

You can find it on Amazon and through a number of other retailers:
