After owning two ICE recumbent trikes for six years and 45,000 miles or 73,000km, I decided to buy something with a bit more weather protection for our cold, windy and rainy winters in the UK and Germany.
Meet Penelope the Purple Peril, a Flevobike Versatile.

Why did I choose a Versatile? And what are they like?

Penelope was a wonderful introduction to Velomobiles but in October 2016 I purchased a Milan which I named Millie, and after this Penelope was rarely used. I sold her in 2017 and she now has a new lease of life and is being regularly used.
