Conference Bike – Team Building on a Bicycle?

We came upon a bike we had never seen before while riding home from a family bike ride last week. It was a circle-shaped, seven person bike with a person in the back steering. The man in the yellow shirt said it was a “conference bike”. Unfortunately, the following picture is not very clear because it was taken while moving and from a distance.
Upon further research, a conference bike is actually considered a tricycle, weighs 400 lbs, includes height adjusting seats, has three brakes (foot, hand, and parking), and costs around $13,000. Most of the pictures I found online show people riding a conference bike without a helmet so it must be fairly stable. What’s more, a conference bike’s uses include corporate team building, bicycle riding for the blind, bike touring, and bike rentals. I am not sure how well a conference bike improves teamwork but there was no doubt that the seven people we saw were having a lot of fun riding it.
