Title (EN) TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM FOR RIDER PROPELLED VEHICLES
(FR) SYSTEME DE TRANSPORT POUR VEHICULE MU PAR SON CONDUCTEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A transportation system and method for rider propelled vehicles, such as bicycles, is disclosed. The system includes a covered structure (35) having a surface (27) for movement thereover of the vehicle. Fan units (23) are provided to move air through the structure in a direction and at a selected velocity sufficient to aid movement of the vehicle. The structure is covered and configured so that relative elevations of the surface (27) of the structure between entrance thereto, and exit therefrom, are selectable independent of the ground grades at the installation sites.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système de transport et le procédé correspondant destinés à des véhicules mus par leur conducteur, des bicyclettes par exemple. Ce système comporte une structure couverte (35) ayant une surface (27) au-dessus de laquelle le véhicule est amené à se déplacer. Des ventilateurs (23) servent à déplacer de l'air à travers la structure dans une direction donnée et à une vitesse choisie suffisante pour aider au déplacement du véhicule. Cette structure est couverte et configurée de manière qu'il soit possible de sélectionner des élévations relatives de la surface (27) de la structure entre son entrée et sa sortie, indépendamment de la pente du sol sur les sites où se trouvent les installations du système.
