Unusual bike takes off
Tuesday, 30th December, 2014
If you spot something unusual cruising the streets it’s just former local Deena Janes out for a ride.
Deena, who grew up and lived in Broken Hill until she was 18, came back home for Christmas with the extended Shoobridge family.
And she brought something a little unusual with her.
The fitness fanatic packed up her two-wheeled ‘Elliptigo’ to take for a ride.
It may look like a bit like a regular bicycle but there is no seat or traditional pedals.
It can best be described as a cross-training machine with wheels.
“People often ask me what it’s like to ride ... it’s definitely different to a bike,” Deena said.
“It would be a bit harder work but you do get more fitness out of it.
“It’s a bit addictive and it’s taking off in the fitness world.”
Deena lives in Sydney and has ridden in Wollongong events and around Lake Taupo in New Zealand.
