Milton Keynes, England - Volkswagen’s Skoda brand, which is not offered in South Africa, has created the ultimate support vehicle for cyclists and although it’s just a one-off concept car for now, it has some interesting features designed to make life easier for cyclists, and it's not impossible that some of these might see light of day at some point in the future.
The Karoq Velo was developed and built by Skoda’s UK division, in collaboration with a team of passionate cyclists and its unique design features were shaped by the results of a survey that involved more than 1500 active riders, who were asked to suggest ideas for the perfect cycling support vehicle.
The result is a vehicle that can even wash your dirty cycling clothes, using a fully integrated spin cycle washing machine. This was developed because 27 percent of the survey respondents said that returning to their car in damp cycling kit was a major downside of riding.
But it doesn’t just wash your clothes.
The on-board water tank also feeds an integrated pressure washer that can clean your bike in a jiffy.
