ROAM (Roll Over America) is a not-for-profit, coast-to-coast velomobile tour designed to bring attention to these highly efficient human powered vehicles. 47 velomobile pilots from Europe and North America departed Portland yesterday on their 3,100 mile journey to Washington D.C. The trip will take approximately one month and will highlight the potential of velomobiles as practical transportation in the widest variety of conditions.

You can read about the participants, follow their progress, and view their route on the ROAM website. Be sure to ride out to say “hi” if they’re coming through your area!
