On Sunday I went for another huneliggers ride. At the start there were ten velomobiles, and my bike which looks rather exposed by comparison.
The photo shows when I'd stopped everyone due to getting a puncture. A new back tyre is in order as that fitted now seems a bit thin.
Beautiful weather for November, but it'd been a bit damp so the ground was wet which caused a bit more mud than I was expecting to see. Velomobiles cope better with ATB trails than I'd ever imagined:
We meet half way between Assen and Groningen, but this week we rode southwards past Assen again. The result is that my ride was just 85 km while others had done 135 km by the time they got home.
Extra video of setting off after the puncture. Georg took the opportunity to ride through a bit more mud:
A previous outing with the huneliggers was described earlier. If you want to see velomobiles going considerably faster than I can manage see the footage here and here.
We organise cycling holidays in this area. Recumbent cyclists are most welcome, as indeed are any other kind of cyclist.
