EUGENE, Ore. (KOIN ) — Oregon residents use their bikes to carry a lot of things: from household contents to produce deliveries.

Now a funeral home in Eugene is offering what may be the only bicycle hearse in the country.

The owner of Sunset Hills Funeral Home said he built this bicycle hearse as a way to give the deceased “one last ride” through the scenic bike paths of Eugene, Ore.

The ride and casket together cost about $3,500.

The funeral owner said he so far has bicycled five bodies to their final destination. And, he said, there is now a waiting list.
