According to Le petit bedouin, de Puiseux did experiments at Ouistreham, France, and the machine was called a cycloplane.[2] If I understand correctly, the propeller is activated by the legs of the cyclist.

He later made a motorized version called "La Mouche." Its wings could be folded for travel.
