Ride a Wooden Bike Down the Swiss Alps

The following video is brought to you courtesy of the Great Big Story YouTube Channel. Click the video below to watch it now.

Skiing and sledding down a mountain? Amateur hour. Try rolling through on a wooden bike. Say hello to the Velogemel, a snow bike local to the Swiss town of Grindelwald. Named for the Swiss words for bike (“velo”) and sled (“gemel”), the mighty Velogemel allows you to ride down a slope while sitting upright, as if you were cycling. The wooden vehicle has been crafted exclusively in the small town for over 100 years. And despite the introduction of modern machinery, the simple and unique production principles still remain the same.
