27 Classic Velomobiles from 1930 to 2015
It isn't often that you see velomobiles in the streets. For some reason this kind of bicycles have never really caught on, even thou they are both faster and safer than normal bicycles. In a velomobile, you sit protected in an aerodynamic cabin. The cabin allows you to use less energy than you would normally do on a bicycle - and at the same time go faster than you have ever done before.

Depending on the velomobile, it is possible to reach speeds up to 40 mph (64 kmh). And the world speed record is even higher. It is currently 83 mph (134 kmh) and most people expect the Arion 1 velomobile to be even faster when it is ready here in 2015. The only problem with velomobiles is the price. Most velomobiles cost $6,000 or more, which is far more than the price of a normal bicycle - but it is still much less than the price of a car (and unlike cars, a velomobiles doesn't require any fuel).
