Camper You Pull With Your Bike Turns the World Into Your Backyard
Camping is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, but who says you need a car to get to your destination?
A Danish company has created the Wide Path Camper, a bicycle camper that allows you to tour the country on your two legs.
Granted, the trailer itself weighs 100 pounds, so unless you hook it onto an electric bike or have very strong legs, you'll be pedaling pretty slowly and perhaps not on steep or rocky terrain.
The best part is that the trailer can expand from 39-by-51 inches for towing into 39-by-102 inches for camping.
Inside the camper, there's a sitting area with a table that seats four people. The table can also convert into a bed for two.
The company is planning to add even more features, such as a sunroof and solar cells so you can power your electronic devices.
According to a Facebook post last month, the company is currently working on getting the product to U.S. and Canadian markets. The trailer costs $4,000.

Not many restaurants will be able to survive coronavirus, and this is a personal, social and national tragedy.
