What is a velomobile?


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).

Midnight Madness 2011

The 2011 version of Midnight Madness was just as much fun as any year. Last year I was lead-out, this year I was near the back. Before the ride, there are costume contests and “official” photographs are taken of the riders. I even got a few photos of my own. It’s a little tricky taking […]

Surly Pacer
