1975 Patterson AerOcycle Sail Bike

Put your sailing skills to the test …the AerOcycle has footrests instead of pedals. The sail, on a 12 1/2 ft mast, is mounted over the front frame and controlled with one arm. Weight: 34lbs. Cost: $200. – George Patterson, 134 Valley Rd, New Canaan, Conn 06840

1975 Patterson AerOcycle Sail Bike 

This is the most unusual cross frame I have encountered. There are no pedals and chain: it’s entirely wind-powered. I’ll update the page after it arrives from America and I’ve taken it to Brighton Marina to find a new mast.
