ALLSTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Nat Reed loves to pedal down the street on her bicycle... with one conspicuous attachment.

The Brighton artist and inventor is the brains behind the "bike house," a regular bicycle with a big cubic frame and triangular roof made of canvas.

"So if the sun is beating down really, such like this, you can bike and still be in the shade," Reed told WBZ NewsRadio.

The canvas is not only helpful for keeping out the sun, but blocking any odd reactions from passersby that Reed gets when she rides.

"You know I can’t really see them with the roof, so it doesn’t really matter," Reed said.

The bike house is not Reed's only dual-wheeled invention. Inside her Allston studio there are bike lamps, bike chairs, and even a bike robot that can draw circles.

"Art is just so fun," Reed said. "I don’t know why everyone doesn’t do it."
