Roll Over America – The Book!

ROAM logoThe Roll Over America (ROAM) velomobile tour which took place in 2011 is now documented in book form.  Available either as an iBook for iOS 5 or 210 Mb PDF from Google Docs, Josef Janning chronicles the story of the first ever velomobile tour across the United States from Oregon to Washington D.C.  The 210 pages cover the 28 day, 5300 km journey in detail, together with additional material and comments from riders and observers.
