EUGENE, Ore. -- The Sunset Hills Cemetery and Funeral Home in Eugene, Ore. offers natural burials where the ride to the final resting place is on the back of a tricycle.

Funeral director Wade Lind says he got the idea from bikers and designed pedal-powered hearse himself. It has an electric motor to give him a little help hauling the casket.

KVAL reports Lind has cycled five bodies so far and there's a waiting list for the service. The ride and a bamboo casket that looks like a basket costs about $3,500.
