The Hy-Cycle is Australia’s first hydrogen-powered bicycle

39 sec read

Now here is an idea that does make an appearance from time to time – that of fuel cell bicycles. The entire process to churn out such two wheelers that are practical is definitely not an easy one, otherwise we would have long seen the market flooded with such rides – not to mention to procure a little bit of hydrogen along the way. The latest iteration of the fuel cell bicycle comes in the form of the Hy-Cycle, which hails from Australia’s University of New South Wales.

Fuel-cell bicycles. It’s an idea that comes around every couple of years. Or about seven. It’s a complicated process, but then again, so is procuring a little hydrogen. The newest version of the two-wheeled hydrogen fuel cell vehicle is from Australia’s University of New South Wales. The school’s researchers are touting the Hy-Cycle, a hydrogen fuel-cell bicycle that can go about 80 miles on a full tank, which is about $2 worth of hydrogen. Now, getting the hydrogen to fill the bike’s 2.5-kilogram-capacity canister may take some doing, but at least the researchers are working on ways to boost hydrogen-storage capacity.
