It’s a problem Tim Cooke has solved with his bicycle/tractor hybrid. Cooke, who runs a 2-acre CSA farm in Milton, Mass., says tractor time was taking a toll on his body. “You’re hunched over and very tense,” he says. His Culticycle combines a bicycle’s pedals, seat, handlebar and chain with ATV tires on the back and lawn tractor parts in the frame. He says it can till, seed and do all the work of a small tractor – giving you a taxing but manageable workout in the process.

Cooke plans to mass-produce the Culticycle soon. Until then, he’s put design info online so any handy farmer to replicate it.
