Sperm bike will be making deliveries around Seattle

The European Sperm Bank's Seattle lab will soon be making deliveries like they do in Copenhagen, by bike.

The Denmark-based company uses two wheels to make deliveries. It's a custom-designed bike with a cooling system built inside the 'sperm head' for storing tanks with sperm specimens.

The company's CEO Peter Bower told MarketWatch, "The first idea was how we could deliver to the fertility clinics in a CO2-friendly way." Then the company realized the bike could be a promotional tool as well.

The Seattle version of the bike will include a motor to get the extra-weighted cycle to get up Seattle's hills.
