dandy horse for adults

gentle mobility

How to improve ambulation in the departmental Domaine départemental de Chamarande (Essonne, France) without disturbing its tranquility? The dandy horse, invented in 1817, that was an ancestor of the bicycle regains its relevance in the service of the visitors of this park. It facilitates the walking of the user who can keep his feet on the ground while being carried by the saddle. The use of plywood is a reference to the first dandy horse. It makes this object different from a conventional bicycle and gives it a warm aspect.
