Bicycle with a Canopy to Protect You from the Rain

veltop bike canopy protects you from the rain

Rain is, without a doubt, one of the biggest deterrents to bicycling. People, for some odd reason, don’t like to get wet…. Well, a company called Veltop has you covered (pun intended). Here’s more from our friends at Crisp Green:

To protect brave bikers against rain, cold, and sun, Veltop has created a portable canopy that enables bikers to cycle while completely sheltered. The canopy is composed of a windscreen and a canopy supported by arches plus two side protections, and is adaptable to all bikes and almost on all trikes.

And here’s a little video on these great products.

Cool, eh?

    Recently I was extremely low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this!! – 7a6d
