The ConferenceBike is a 7-seat human powered vehicle created by artist Eric Staller and manufactured in Santa Cruz, California, USA by conferencebike.com and in Germany by Velo.Saliko. One person steers and all may pedal . The bike has a circular jointed drive-shaft and rack & pinion steering. In most countries it has the same legal status as a bicycle. There are now 300 ConferenceBikes in 18 countries.
The ConferenceBike is used primarily for tourism, and used as a team building tool at corporations and university campuses, increasing social interaction among friends and associates. Google Inc. has nine bikes in use for transportation and team building on their campus.
The Washington DC Veterans Administration Medical Center has a ConferenceBike that was donated by Eric Staller's father. It is used by employees and Veterans for recreational and fundraising events.
