The Tree-cycle

It’s the dream of every civilisation that humankind should develop the ability to climb trees on a bicycle. The Prussian genius for mechanical invention produced this noble effort in the 1920’s but for some reason it failed to capture the public imagination and languishes in obscurity. Sadly, the excitement to be derived from pedalling up tree trunks continues to elude the human race to this day.
