A velomobile or bicycle car is a human-powered vehicle, enclosed for protection from weather and collisions.  Here a young man is peddling the velomobile in a recumbent position.  The velomobile is built on a recumbent bike frame with two steerable wheels in the front and one wheel in the back.  This tricycle design allows for a stable vehicle on wet roads.  The vehicle is air streamed to decrease wind resistance and shield the rider from rain.  As fuel consumption becomes more of an issue, more commuters will switch to human powered vehicles.
