I just added these to my Quest, to give me more storage space when I tour. They enclose an are in the front that would be of little or no use, normally. I can put three tires and three tube in them. I might be able to get all that in one, if I pack them right.
The color came out a little weird on this side. Probably the direction the light was pointed. Challenging part of the velomobile to photograph, especially since it’s mostly black.
Paul and I hatched a plan about a month ago to do an overnight bicycle camping trip. Paul arrived at my house shortly before 9:00 AM Saturday morning, raring to go. I was excited too. This was a test for equipment and practices. I have new camping equipment pared down to fit inside the velomobile. […]
Did you build it?
No I bought it from BlueVelo in Toronto Canada. The bodies are built in Romania and mine was partially assembled in Dronten, Netherlands, then shipped to Toronto for final assembly and export to the U.S. where I live.
Do you ride it on the […]
A velomobile, or bicycle car, is a human-powered vehicle (HPV) enclosed for aerodynamic advantage and protection from weather and collisions. Nearly all velomobiles are single-passenger vehicles. They are derived from recumbent bicycles and tricycles, with the addition of a full fairing (aerodynamic shell).

Shipped today April 11, 2014. Like waiting for a child to be born. Know within […]

Or for those not in the know, the Left Coast VeloMobile Gathering

This is a great place to have a velomobile gathering. Craig and Vicky did a first rate job of organizing, planning the routes and welcoming us to their home. I’ve never seen so many […]
The title for this ride is because the original plan was to take the train to San Jose, then ride from there. Later we decided that driving would shorten the trip almost two days. The challenge was to find a place to park the car, while we toured. I asked on the bicycle touring mailing […]

Our plan was to ride four days with three overnight camps. Thursday, the first day, would be the toughest. We would ride from Poway to La Jolla Indian Reservation Campground. The distance is 40 miles, […]
