THE FLORIDA SENIOR GAMES
DECEMBER 10, 2013.
The Florida Senior Games has welcomed velomobiles
to participate in its modified class 5 and 10km time trials.
No qualification required for out of State competitors.
Randy has posted a few great "how to" videos on youtube, including the following for seat height, seat angle and bottom bracket adjustments.
WHAT A RIDE!
Congratulations to Larry on his absolutely amazing ride across the southern tier
of the U.S., from San Diego to Jacksonville, in his Quest velomobile.
RACE HOODS IN STOCK
We now have beautiful carbon/kevlar Sinner race hoods in stock for the Quest, Strada and XS. Check out our Accessories page for further information.
Thanks to Kevin for stopping to take this great photo of his XS while riding along the Red River near Winnipeg.
I'll bet that if we asked you where you thought our good friends Stuart and Arne stopped to take these photos, your first guess wouldn't be that it was just outside.........
NEOPRENE LINED ELBOW RESTS
Our new foam elbow pads with neoprene liner have arrived. See the "Accessories" page for more info.
Craig sent us this amazing photo of his Quest, now residing on the west coast.
For the beautiful Quest photos you forwarded to us. Check out his website at
Randy has posted a couple of nice videos to compliment our User Guide and assist new Quest/Strada and XS owners with making adjustments to their velomobiles.
Our shop has been filled with Quest XS builds lately. Here's a shot of Allan, one of our most
recent owners, getting ready to set out on his first (177 mile!) ride.
As we expand our presence in Ontario we have added assembly space in Kitchener, Ontario and Quest, Hornet and Team test rides are now being hosted in beautiful Collingwood. Please contact us in advance by e-mail or telephone to arrange a test ride. Thanks!
DOUBLE YOUR FUN
This sleek ride is one of a pair of identical twin Stradas headed for the roads of Quebec .
Another beautiful Strada hits the road.
QUEST/STRADA USER GUIDE
We've recently added this link to our Quest/Strada user guide .
While the large majority of our velomobiles are ordered in white or yellow,
this red Quest (available for the carbon model) looks fantastic.
Here's a photo of the new optional 26" rear wheel configuration on our Hornet design.
STRADA IN ACTION
Robin Loznak, of Robin Loznak Photography catches John riding his Strada on a foggy Roseburg, Oregon morning. Check out his other work at this link.
NEW NECK REST FOR QUEST/STRADA
We recently received a sample of Ventisit's new neck rest for the Quest/Strada.
It's a very nice accessory that we will have in stock shortly, priced at $35 CDN.
MAP YOUR RIDES
I plan to make an effort in the coming months to post some of the cycling
routes that we enjoy travelling by velomobile in the Toronto area.
As a starting point, here's a link to a recent ride from Toronto to Wasaga Beach
in rolling terrain. The best part is that you get to relax on the beautiful sandy
shores of Georgian Bay once you reach your destination.
Here's a shot of the interior of our current carbon Quest build.
COVERAGE IN QUEBEC
For our French speaking customers, Andre Bilodeau forwarded us this link to an
article that appeared in his local paper (click on photo below). Thanks Andre!
Steve took this very nice shot of our latest Quest awaiting pick-up by its new owner.
It sports our lnew LED light configuration, as well as our new 12V electrical
system. More info on that shortly......
Congratulations to Ray Sr. who not only piloted his Quest to a new course
record for his age group (70-75) at the 2010 Florida Senior Games,
but also set the second fastest time on the course to date!
HOW WILL YOU FEEL WHEN YOUR
I think that this shot from Michigan says it all.
But then, wouldn't you feel the same knowing this beauty was inside...
