Here's the best I have on hand — not directly over the handlebars but it'll have to do for now. Taken July 2014 east of Canmore AB. 2001 Giant rigid MTB.

A Brief Respite From Winter

It's a beautiful February morning, here in Minnesota. Outside temperature is a balmy 36F, heading for a high of around 57. So I took ye olde Roadster out this morning; my `71 Raleigh DL-1. Rode over to the local pond and shot this:

Replaced the original handlebar with a flatbar to lower my position, Ergon grips with bar-ends compatible with the Sram Gripshifts light and a bell.

And a 'hybrid' mirror (Cateye mirror, Busch&Muller mount, I made the mistake to order the small B&M mirror)

Wow. That is just completely, utterly gorgeous! Which part of SoCal is that? I served with the Marines at MCAS El Toro back in the eighties... and that looks strangely familiar.

The big one in center frame is Mt. San Gorgonio. This is taken in Redlands-- so if you had ever ventured to Big Bear or any of the local ski resorts, or had to spend any time at Twenty Nine Palms, you drove right through here.

I need to take a trip to California. That's a pretty nice looking path and the weather is gorgeous. I keep forgetting to take a photo. It was 70 here in PA today. Just got out of the after-ride shower.

That explains it. I used to race mountain bikes at Big Bear, and I spent a couple unhappy detachments at 29 Palms. I cannot believe that was 30 years ago!

Now that's something you don't see everyday. After reading this post, I had to look up "velomobile" to see what it is. Wow! I've never seen one on a bike path, let alone on the street. What kind of treatment (respect or disdain) do you get from other cyclists? Do you ride that on the streets as well?

I do ride it on the street almost exclusively, it really a bit too fast for a crowded MUP.
Lots of people are interested in it because they are so rare (strange). Many ask me if it has a motor in it and when they find out it doesn't, suggest I should install one.

There are a couple of guys on a FB group I'm in that have velomobiles, and they have quite a few incidents with law enforcement. One guy I know of has been pulled over something like 40 times in his velomobile because they all think it has a motor and want to know why it doesn't have a license plate.

If you're in an area where the cops don't respect cyclists much, you'll likely have a LOT of problems in a velomobile.

Aw, that is so darned cool! I have a dog who would absolutely love that! I imagine those are quite expensive, though. Thank you for giving me something else to discover in cycling. I believe a feasibility study is in order...
