Why to Cycle a Velomobile: Comfortable

Pure Pedal Power

Why to cycle a velomobile? Among other advantages, the velomobile is comfortable to ride. Here are 6 good reasons why a velomobile is much more comfortable as a upright bicycle.

1) Ergonomic Seating Position

Velomobiles typically have a recumbent or semi-reclined seating position. This seating arrangement distributes the rider’s weight more evenly across a larger surface area, reducing pressure on the hands, wrists, and lower back. This ergonomic design minimizes discomfort and potential pain during longer rides.

2) Reduced Weight on Hands and Wrists

In an upright bicycle, a significant portion of the rider’s weight is supported by the hands and wrists while gripping the handlebars. In a velomobile, the weight is distributed more evenly between the seat and the pedals, relieving pressure on the upper body.

3) Supportive Seating

Velomobile seats are often padded and contoured to provide optimal support to the rider’s body. This helps reduce fatigue and minimizes the risk of soreness on pressure points.

4) Weather Protection

The enclosed shell of a velomobile offers protection from wind, rain, and other weather elements. This protection enhances comfort by maintaining a more stable microclimate around the rider, allowing for a comfortable ride even in adverse weather conditions.

5) No Need for Balance

Velomobiles have three or four wheels and a stable design, eliminating the need for the rider to balance the vehicle while stationary or at low speeds. This makes starting and stopping more comfortable and convenient.

6) Extended Riding Season

The weather protection provided by velomobiles allows riders to continue cycling comfortably in colder or wetter conditions, extending the riding season and providing a comfortable alternative to cycling in adverse weather.
