Zapworld.com, the US electric vehicle supplier, has developed the Golfcycle, a three-wheeled, electric turf bike that combines cycling with golf. Unfortunately its not available in the UK as yet and would hardly be a substitute for a real bike but, hey, it might turn some golfers on to cycling...
A Zapworld announcement says: The Golfcycle is a single passenger golf vehicle equipped with a hybrid human-electric propulsion system and room to carry your golf clubs. You can pedal the bike as fast or as little as you want, or simply sit back and enjoy the scenery on the way to your next shot. Adjust your speed or exertion with the help of a seven-speed transmission, so you can play and exercise at your own pace.
Golf courses can benefit from having the GOLFCYCLE in their fleet. The unique design offers a new attraction to golfers. Rentals and sales can add a new source of revenue. The new carts help speed up play, and because they cause zero turf damage, they will help reduce landscape maintenance costs.
Madison is the UK importer of zapworld.com products.
