The sole purpose of putting forth an idea for developing a cycle with elliptical pedaling is to subconsciously attract the customers towards buying a workout bicycle, thereby laterally promoting the usage of non-polluting vehicles for shorter distances. The concept of elliptical pedaling is nothing but combining the slider-crank mechanism along with the normal bicycle. The ease of operating an elliptical bicycle when compared with a normal bicycle makes it to be represented as a standout product. Although conceptually the idea is already available, one additional attribute in this proposed product differentiates it from other elliptical bicycles, i.e., making the elliptical bicycle float in water. By adding detachable floating supports on the sides of the elliptical bicycle, it is possible to make it float in flood-prone areas. Combining these two ideas is a completely new concept resulting in the name Amphi-elliptical bicycle since it can be used both on land and water. Establishing this type of vehicle at a considerably low cost with the attributes mentioned above will emerge it as a successful product in the market because people are turning to be more health-conscious and are trying to act responsibly to contribute in some way for reducing pollution in the environment. This product will even be available at tourist attractions replacing normal bicycles shortly as it acts as an entertainment vehicle.
