Velomobiles are aerodynamic, fully (or nearly so) enclosed bikes/trikes.
Think "micro car". Some have fairings which are removeable for fine weather, others are
of monocoque design. Some have the option of motor assistance to
extend their range and make hills easier.

Primarily designed as a commuter vehicle, the Aerorider's electric drive assist supports speeds
up to 50 km/h but can be limited depending on national legislation. Because it has 3 wheels and
full bodywork, the driver is not obliged to wear a helmet. Currently (2006) hand-manufactured in
the Netherlands and priced (with delivery) under $10,000, it's available from Aerorider BV,
It's 600-watt motor and aerodynamic shape combine to offer a 28 mph top speed without pedaling;
pedaling increases top speed, acceleration and range. Watch the
showing the Aerorider in action. Good soundtrack, too.
Aero Rider is now available in Southern California. Take a test drive today. Call 1-213-810-8842 for a reservation. http://www.velota.com
