We love eco-friendly modes of transportation here on GeekSugar, but the best way to get around without a carbon footprint is by, well, using your feet. Or in this case, legs. These Velomobiles are the perfect combination of self-powered transport and geeky style. These pod-like contraptions are actually recumbent bikes with an outer shell that keeps you protected from wind, rain, and bugs, and, because they're aerodynamic, you can go faster and farther. Let's face it, these guys look really fun to ride, and if you're in the northern part of the US this Summer, you may see a few whizzing by — the Coast to Coast Velomobile Tour is covering over 3,000 miles this Summer with over 50 riders from the US and UK! Check out a few more images of the velomobiles getting ready to be shipped from their home in the Neatherlands to the West Coast in the gallery!
