Introducing Hydrobikes
Hydrobikes go faster, ride easier, maneuver better and give you surprising stability in the water. So you can explore more places, experience more activities and enjoy the ride like never before. Keeping fit was never so easy and so much fun. This is real off-road biking, with the whole lake, river or shoreline at your feet. Hydrobikes are designed and built to perform virtually maintenance-free, season after season. It's an investment you and your family will never stop enjoying. It's free-spirited fun for every age, from 8 to 80.

Half boat, half bicycle, water cycles are a fast, sporty twist on the cutesy, lumbering paddleboats of yesteryear -- and still in some places, like Green Lake. Combining a good workout, fresh air and easy handling, they're fun toys that can travel serious distances.
The Hydrobike has been pedaled up the Mississippi from New Orleans to Minnesota, while the Seacycle has crossed the English Channel and journeyed 1,100 miles from Juneau to Seattle.
(Note : when referring to the type of bike they are, here the term “water bike” is used. When it comes to the particular one used in the example, the article reverts to Hydrobike with capital letter but no © ).

A search on GOOGLE.COM produced hits for the machines in Italy and Switzerland where the term used is Hydrobike ©. Go for it!

A hint for future machines, you can always have a quick try on www.XXXXXXXXXXXX.com substituting the XXXXXXXX with the name of the product. All the more likely to produce a direct hit if the trademark has been registered.
