Bristol inventor designs moving rowing machine

An inventor from Bristol has designed a new bike that you row rather than pedal.

John Packer was asked to come up with a prototype by a former world champion oarsman. He was bored of the gym and wanted to train in the fresh air.

The new bike's steering wheel goes backwards and forwards and the leg movement is like that of a rowing machine.
