Forget a Real Pony, A Pony Cycle Could Be More Fun

Bikes are fun and a good workout and all but why ride a boring old bike when you can ride a pony? Ponycycle, that is. New Zealand has a new transportation option with Ponycycles, a ride-on mechanical gizmos for both children and adults.

The "toys" have a wheel at the end of each leg and moved forward through human power by pumping your legs, kind of like swinging. Right now a company is only renting them out in New Zealand but they plan to sell them for home use soon. They are also available in South Africa.

The best part- these ponies don't need food, water or grooming.
