paravelo 640x546Living in the city might be extremely enticing with all of that bright lights around you, not to mention seemingly endless entertainment options to boot, but like all other things in life, there is a flipside to it, and high stress levels tend to be associated to city dwellers. Apart from pressures at the office that will result in headaches for most folks, there is also the endless “battle” with other road users on congested roads every day when you go and return from work. In some countries, cycling to work has become a popular alternative, especially in congested urban centers, but the Paravelo flying bicycle spices things up by a few notches as you can literally take to the skies and avoid all dangers on the road as a cyclist.

The Paravelo relies on an electric motor to power its fan, where a single full charge is said to be able to provide up to three hours of flight. It requires you to hit 15mph to take off, and once you are in the air, it maxes out at a top speed of 25 mph and an altitude of 4,000 feet. Right now, the Paravelo is a Kickstarter idea, but who is going to police this thing in the air if it happens to make the cut? It certainly is a different kind of flying bicycle compared to what we’ve seen in the past.
