The Left Coast Velomobile Gathering was held in Los Osos, CA on March 29 + 30. I counted 17 velos: 6 different brands and two homebuilt coroplast velos, plus a couple of trikes, a recumbent bike and a couple of upright bikes. On two days of leisurely rides we toured the area around gorgeous Morrow Bay, covering about 100 miles. I believe "Mayor" Craig Johnsen has organized this wonderful event four times now. Riding in a group of velos is at least as much fun as the solo riding we do most of the time, and the camaraderie and increased attention add to the experience.
After the daily rides, we gathered at Craig's house to compare and try out each other's machines and talk about all things recumbent, velomobile and human-powered. I personally rode three velos for the first time, including one I had never seen up close before.
