Undriver rides coast to coast in Velomobile!
Meet Undriver Thomas Traber of Munich, Germany – he pedaled his velomobile across the country, sporting his Undriver License™ the whole way! Imagine a pod of these three-wheeled recumbent “bikes” covered with fiberglass shells, rolling down the backroads near you…
“I got my Undriver License at Portland’s July Sunday Parkways. I was in Portland, OR for the start of the Roll Over America Velomobile Tour (ROAM2011) – a coast-to-coast ride of 35 to 50 velomobiles with the intention to promote cycling and velomobiling. Therefore I pledged to tell the people I met about Undriving and the importance of sustainable transport. The best occasion for that was at MacDonald Pass in Montana, when I was interviewed by a reporter of the local newspaper. At least the last sentence of the newspaper article contained the message. ‘You don’t always need to drive your car!’ ”
