British creators John Foden, 37, and Yannick Read, 42, hope to ease the stress of the daily commute with their latest creation – a zany combination of bicycle and fan-powered aircraft.

Dubbed the Paravelo, this extraordinary personal mobility invention fuses a fold-up bicycle with a fan, a motor and a parachute to create a handy flying machine that's capable of reaching an altitude of 4,000ft and a top speed of 25mph.
