Sensational Cycles by Swaim
When fans arrive at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center they expect to be greeted by typical two-wheeled bicycles, however, this week they get a special surprise as Bob Swaim will be taking up shop in the plaza with his variety of cycling marvels.
Swaim started riding a few years ago mostly for exercise. He started on a traditional bicycle, but quickly realized the limited variety that a standard two-wheeled bicycle can offer. “The more variety that you introduce into your exercise routine the less chance you will stop,” Swaim explains. So, to keep himself going he began to collect bikes so he would never stop.
He has a vast collection including a high wheeler, mini tandem, sociable, and a Pedersen Bicycle. Not sure what those are? Swaim is more than happy to explain. “My proudest experience is introducing new ideas and Human Powered Vehicles [bicycles] during my presentations,” Swaim says.
Swaim is bringing his dicycle this Friday. It has two seven foot wheels that are positioned to the left and the right of the rider. He will be taking it for a lap around the track to set the World Record in Age Quotient. The Age Quotient is a measurement he developed for those over 40 and generates a score to compensate for the age.
Come out this Friday to Corporate Challenge and get an education on all kinds of Human Powered Vehicles and cheer Swaim on when he goes for the record!
