Man Has Musical Bicycle

There's no piano tied to this gentleman's bike. Well, maybe a piano is next.


I met this very nice man outside the Danforth Avenue, Canadian Tire store, here in Toronto. He explained to me that he wanted to hear all his favorite songs while riding on his bicycle. He has an inverter to convert 12 volts DC to 110 volts AC. That's used to power up a “boom box” which has a CD changer, an AM/FM radio, two cassette tape decks, and two stereo speakers suspended from the rear of the bike. On the ground is a new inverter which will provide even more power for the equipment.


Music lovers from all over the world can take some tips from this guy. This is Canadian ingenuity at it's best. We invented a new way to have portable music everywhere we go.


Eat your heart out Apple.
