Described in this paper is a Self-Stabilizing Hybrid Bicycle. Gyroscope technology is implemented to develop the balancing forces to achieve stability on all terrains. The main principle revolves around generating the counteracting torque to help stabilize the tilting action of the vehicle. Along with this, we have introduced a hybrid system to prime the cycle when the rider is tired. The hybrid system includes a battery which can be charged by three different ways: Solar power, mechanical power from a dynamo from the pedal and an Ac supply charge. To charge the electric motor driving the bicycle, the energy from all these three paths is used. The hybrid-powered bicycle is built so that the rider can drive the bicycle in two ways, i.e. he can choose to use the electric motor entirely or he can ride it by himself manually which in turn charges the battery.
