Gelsenkirchen, Germany (dpa) - Riding a bicycle without pedalling is a dream of many people. A German company is hoping to make this reality.

Just a few hundred metres from Gelsenkirchen's football stadium, Masterflex AG is working on a new mode of transportation: fuel-cell powered bicycles and three-wheeled "cargo bikes."

"We're the world leaders in our field," says Stefan Schulte, the company's product manager. "Technologically, we're about a year or two ahead of the competition."
