Hi
Saw an orange Quatrovelo tonight at 810pm near long water today (14 May), i tried to flag/wave the guy down when i pulled my car over,(he was very slow :-)) but he either ignored me or couldn't see and hear me.

Just wonder if anyone knows who it could have been in Norwich, it would be great to say hello, go for a ride together and chat. He looked of a retired age with a salt n pepper beard.
Perhaps its a continental driver going for a long tour?

I looked for a possible driver/owner on the list at velomobil.nl but nothing local was showing (perhaps they advent updated i)

thanks
Its life jim, but not as we know it.

The only full orange ones I know in the UK are John Williams and Rob Hague, Rob's in his 50's salt n pepper beard, not that fast and has limited vision (in some circumstances). He does tour so could have been him laden down with camping gear.

I tend not to stop for people who try to flag me down especially if I'm on a mission, there are some right weirdo's about.

I had one follow me all the way home just so his son could have a look at the XS when I had it.

Rob is off the road with health issues at the moment so definitely wouldn't have been him...

sounds like the QV John delivered to a new owner in that part of the country a few weeks earlier.
