Oh, the adventures of commuting by velomobile (Milan) across Romney Marsh! Let me paint you a picture of what it's like to ride the fastest pedal powered machine I've ever owned.

 

Picture this: a 45-kilometer commute each way, filled with gnarly climbs that make even the most seasoned cyclist break a sweat. Fear not! In this windy paradise, the aero benefits of the trusty velomobile become your secret weapon. It's like having your very own wind-resistant chariot, propelling you forward while others struggle against the gusts.

 

Now, let's talk about the Milan's celebrity status. Yes, it's true! My velomobile is a local superstar, boasting multiple Facebook groups dedicated to sightings of its sleek design cruising across the marsh. There was even a newspaper article about it, capturing the fascination and awe it inspires among the locals. It's practically a mobile paparazzi magnet! (Article appeared with the title "Bizarre vehicle spotted on Kent's roads leaves residents baffled" on "www.kentonline.co.uk" website.)

 

Sure, the journey takes you a mere 10 or 15 minutes longer than driving, but it's so much more fun. While those enclosed in their metal boxes endure tedious traffic jams, I zip along in my velomobile, a smile plastered across my face. The joy of pedaling through the picturesque scenery of Romney Marsh is unparalleled.

 

Speaking of pedaling, let's not forget the sheer distance covered since I got my bike in November 2022. Almost 6000 kilometers! That's enough to make anyone's legs ache in sympathy. But with every pedal stroke, I've explored the nooks and crannies of this unique landscape, witnessing the changing seasons and embracing the challenges of the road.

 

And let's not overlook that hilarious encounter with the police. Zooming along in the Milan at such astonishing speeds, they couldn't believe their eyes. They had to pull me over, thinking there must be some hidden motor providing that incredible top speed. But no, it's just my pedal power propelling me faster than they could fathom.

 

So, my velomobile commuter friend, you too could navigate the windswept Romney Marsh, conquering the climbs, delighting the locals, and confounding the authorities, your journey becomes a masterpiece of poetry in motion. Keep pedaling, keep smiling, and keep spreading the joy of your velomobile adventures to all those fortunate enough to witness it.
