Velomobiles vs bicycles: facts and figures.

Going back to a few months ago and the posts about my now sold Rotovelo velomobile…

I am adding today a slide with a comprehensive velomobiles model list – thanks to http://www.cykelvalg.dk, their main specification and performance vs regular bicycles. So here is the recap:

velomobile

Although the performance of a human powered vehicule depends greatly upon training, fitness, the added value of the complete fairing vs the extra weight of this feature is demonstrated here (with low uphill and downhill levels though). You can expect these numbers to increase greatly depending on the climb and downhill levels. I am still owner of a recumbent bicycle and a Catrike Speed trike / tricycle and believe, especially for the trike, that it is probably the best human powered vehicule I ever owned.

Le jet d’eau et la lune.

March is eventually arrived, days are longer and the wind is less harsh and cold. Crossing the bridge to go back home, the jet d’eau is greeting the moon…

Merry Christmas! Felice Natale! Joyeux Noël!

I wish you this day so is the shape of this Madonna. With a look at the sky, always thankful. With the light handy so you are not at the mercy of the darkness. With a shelter where to go to, to rest in peace during stormy days. And with your mind opened and sometime ready for compromise, so is the leaning cross at the top of this altar.  Merry Christmas!

Love: made in Paestum.

Holidays are to discover the world or do nothing.

Second Italian post in less than a month. Yes, because enjoying la dolce vita and the sea is definitely one of the most important thing in life, and after Amalfi coast I am offering you Cilento!

Love?

Love?

Yes, for sure. Love and music and friendly atmosphere in this lido as they are called in Italy.  A nice place to rest, enjoy the sun and a cool and friendly atmosphere: if you pass by, this location is worth a visit… the bar is open!

Welcome to Dum Dum Republic in Paestum!

Music, local beer and more, made in Dum Dum!

Amalfi.

Following months without posting, I could only start again with pictures from the most beautiful country in the world: Italy.

Take the road SS163, from Salerno to Napoli or vice versa. Stop here and there to enjoy the scenery, the steep cliffs and the sea. Have a break at Maiori for a “dolce” at Sal De Riso Pasticeria. And yes, Ferrari also made part of its 458 Spider official trailer there. One of the most beautiful road of the world.

Get a job while you still know everything!

Seen on the road, AZ.

Sounds obvious, truths are so hard to find nowadays and that makes them so beautiful to discover! Seen in the middle of nowhere in Arizona.
