Pibal, Bicycle/Scooter Philippe Starck and Peugeot

View all 3 Photos

Introducing genuine glee: the Pibal. What we have here is an excellent new concept, a part bicycle part scooter designed by Philippe Starck and Peugeot Cycles for a bike sharing program in Bordeaux, France. All the joy in riding on two wheels is amplified by the sunny yellow tires made for style and safety, cause no one’s going to miss seeing you pass by this time.  And if that doesn’t make you smile, maybe you will for the handy dandy store age rack over the rear tire or the convenient platform to rest your feet when scootering. It’s a practical matching of exercise and leisure, environmentally pleasing and commuter satisfying. In the words of Starck, “Pibal is an answer to new urban ergonomics, thanks to a lateral translation which allows oneself to pedal long distances, to scoot in pedestrian areas and to walk next to it, carrying a child or any load on its platform.”

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
