    Default I need a pedal power 4-wheeler

    Does anybody know of a vehicle like an ATV, or 4-wheeler, but that operates by pedal power? Wife and I are both 54, need to get around our 20 acres, but we need the exercise and don't like wasting gas. I've seen 3-wheel bikes, and 4-wheel bike-type "cars". What would really work well is a cross between a bike and a golf cart. It would need balloon tires because the ground is all kinds, smooth and rough. Would be sweet if it could be covered or even enclosed in winter. And 3 gears are more would be good, since we have a hill. Does any company sell something like this, or do I need to figure out how to make it?

    Im on the case. Google don't fail me now.

    Edit: I wouldn't worry too much about balloon tires as they are heavy and have a really high rolling resistance, mountain bikes make it through all types of terrain on 2" wide knobby tires.

    WOW archerm3!!

    Next time I need suggestions I'm gonna contact you directly... U DA MAN! We had the same problem as the OP but went for gas-powered because I had no clue of the pedal powered options.

    P.S. where are you? I'd invite you to be a guest at our archery range if you were close enough.
