Details of the Roll Over America begin to gel. It looks like it will be the largest gathering of velomobiles the USA has ever seen. The route is beginning to come together and day three looks pretty intense about 150 miles and over 6,000 feet of elevation gain. More motivation to keep training. I did 60 miles yesterday.

The "new" Alleweder Velomobile

Shortly after the last post I experienced one of those rare times when the stars aligned. I posted to BentriderOnline on a Friday that I had signed up to the Roll Over America and now I needed figure out which options I wanted to get with the Alleweder kit. I assumed I would be buying the kit in the fall and building over the winter. The next day I had a message from Larry, a fellow bentrider that he had just take delivery of a new Greenspeed Glyde and his Alleweder was up for sale. His asking price for it was less than the unbuilt kit. He delivered it on Monday. Here a picture of me in it.
