Bike Mower

We have had some unseasonably warm weather in Rochester. Yesterday it got up to 68 degrees! Kinda nutty for Rochester in March! With the taste of spring in the air, it's really hard not to think about gardening and other outdoor activities. Mowing the lawn for one. My distaste for the gas mower has led me to seek alternatives. I willingly huff and puff behind a push mower to avoid the noise of the gas mower.

Then I saw someone post this to Facebook. A bike mower!

Get. Out. of. Here. Combine this task with something that I love and we have a winner. Most of the bike mowers I have seen look hand cobbled together. Seems like there would be some challenges to angles and whatnot, but if you could get this to work it would be so great!


  1. Bike mower; Good idea! I can totally see you riding around on one of those contraptions.

  2. I LOVE this idea! I bet someone here in the Netherlands could hack that. I'll ask around. (although yards are super tiny and often non-existent here, so maybe there is no market for it here...)
