From onshore to offshore relief, from Atlantic Ocean rescues to hillside emergency medical relief, the Impossible Roads Relief and Outreach Vehicle Fleet is equipped to serve in the most extreme and urgent situations. Our Fleet includes a 200ft relief boat affectionately called the M/V What If, a vintage camper, two vintage 2-ton trucks, a hybrid motorcycle, a recumbent trike, a steel bicycle, and boots on the ground. All vehicles in our fleet are equipped with our propriety NASA relief module to ensure that we do the best job in our efforts to serve those encountering disaster, poverty, displacement, food insecurity and great need.
Our fleet is the way by which we interface with community and curate and discover the world of need and opportunity all around. The IR WhIR, is the Impossible Roads Foundation favorite relief-classed bicycle. Affectionately named “WhIR”because of the sound the wheels makes when we are hauling our butts off during a rescue or urgent call.
Our vintage steel bicycle is custom commuter bike, it thrives on any terrain or hill, and it is used in our outreach efforts nearly everyday. Built to explore, the WhIR is best experienced in the dirt. It’s legacy is dusty and dissident and it will be most appreciated by those who tune to another dance. This off-road capable bike is for those who travel the roads less traveled and prefer fire roads to freeways. It is our homage to an outlaw era when motorcycles evolved from the pavement to the dirt. It is a nod to the ingenuity and creativity that prompted off-road motorcycle racing and adventuring, as well as a glimpse into the future of what a robust relief-class commuter bike can do. The WhIR is equipped with all of our modern sensors and maps, and it is Handmade by Hope…a distinction that is defined by diligent artisan details that add to both the beauty and functionality of this one-of-a-kind state-of-the-art bicycle.
