There is a bicycle wheel with a set of hand-cranks or pedals is attached directly to its hub. This wheel is situated at the tip of a large glider wing of indeterminate dimensions from this vantage point. Underneath the wing a perhaps partially nude person lies prostrate with wheeled casters at various points distributing forces somewhat evenly.

       I'm a little unclear about the part between "Wheel" and "evenly.".

       Is this a ground vehicle or is it intended to be launched in the air?

       Is it a vehicle, or a static artwork?
