Recently, bicycle is a popular transportation with a benefit of not fuming exhausts. Taking another step forward to it, the Puricycle suggests the expanded role of
bicycle that purifies air by going all around the city. Like a microorganism.

When Inhaled air passes the main body of the Purifying Bicycle, fine dust and contaminant in the air are leached by the airfilter.

By turning wheels , polluted air is sucked into the five intakes in the fore wheel.

The structure is activated when cyclist makes power by pedaling.

Through five outlets in the back wheel, purified air is released into the atmosphere.
