bricycle BricycleThis is one of the first velomobiles I posted in my blog and still one of my favorites. Bricycle is an interesting read by an interesting gentleman. This is not the lowest, fastest recumbent on the road but a very usable commuter. Mr Brice seems to have some good woodworking skills.Here is a link to his home page which contains several links to videos of the Bricycle.

ecomobile Bill ‘Major Dude’ Pocock and the EcoRocket. A couple of years ago I read of the coast to coast Canadian crossing. Stay up till early in the morning reading their log. There was at one time a web site feactering the build of the EcoRockket but I can no longer find it. The cedar strip build held up to the crossing.
