I think my father (standing right) is about 18 years old when this photo was made… so the photo is about 100 years old!
The photo fades away, I tried to get a bit more contrast in it. Nothing is eternal … My father apparently had a nice luxury bike!
But my grandfather was already driving around in the 1940s / 50s in a kind of 4-wheeled velomobile that looked very much like a car … He had it made because he couldn’t get a driver’s license. The “velomobile” did have pedal assistance and was regularly used from Vorden to Zutphen vice versa, to visit family.
I am still servicing my velomobile …
Cycling, more people should do that …

I remember when you first got your Velomobile or should I say, when I first saw it on Youtube. I watched your videos over and over. It was another 2 years before I finally got my first Quest. 10 years ago last November 20th. Buying a Velomobile was the nicest thing that I have ever done for myself.
You were a great inspiration to me.
I have just finished watching your video from Oliebollentocht 2007 VEOH. Still one of my all time favorites.
