Funeral home has bicycle hearse for 1 last rideMay 17, 2013 @ 8:59 am
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon funeral home in Eugene offers natural burials where the ride to the person's final resting place is on the back of a three-wheeled bicycle.
Sunset Hills Cemetery and Funeral Home director Wade Lind says he got the idea from bikers and designed the pedal-powered hearse himself. It has an electric motor to give him a little help hauling the casket.
KVAL reports ( http://bit.ly/10VwlL1) Lind has bicycled five bodies so far and there's a waiting list for the service. The ride and a bamboo casket that looks like a basket costs about $3,500.
