Riding the DF XL

I’ve had the DF XL about a month now. Most of my rides have been short sprints up to Goleta Beach early in the morning when I can sneak away from my computer. I’ve got the velomobile pretty well dialed in to my liking. It’s very comfortable, it shifts well and it’s fast.

Today I took a 32 mile ride down the coast and back with my friend Jon Gray, owner of (standard) DF #36 and the first DF to land in the US. The ride is very velomobile-friendly. It’s totally flat with very smooth pavement. As an example of the benefits of following a faster velomobile pilot, today’s ride ended for me with 21 new Strava personal records. Here are a couple of pics:
