Velomobiles powered by pure human power can achieve - due to their good aerodynamics - great speeds (hour record 78 km/h) and also provide excellent weather protection, but their extra weight is a handicap for non-athletes in hilly areas. On the other hand electrically assisted bicycles offer the highest average speeds in urban riding but little comfort and weather protection. Merging these two classes of vehicles we will possibly arrive at vehicles which protect from too much sunshine and too much rain, which are aerodynamically efficient but nevertheless as fast in the hills as in the flat !
The Velomobile Seminar 1999 took place August 18 1999 at Interlaken, Switzerland.
The proceedings: They contain 27 papers on 256 pages: 21 papers deal with the main topic "Assisted HPV" and 6 papers are about HPV in general.
Coloured covers. The proceedings contain many figures and pictures.
