Naw -- the cool thing about riding a 'bent trike or a velomobile is that so many people have never seen one on the road... So the immediate reaction is "whoa, what's that - let me keep my distance"
At least that has been my (limited) experience on tadpole trikes
And I've heard the same thing from the trike community
Pretty obvious that guy doesn't live below the Mason-Dixon line It would be hot in there with the sun out.
With proper ventilation (and clothing), fully "sealed" HPVs aren't too bad. Unless you're at a stand still. It's no climate controlled car, but it's enjoyable
If you're in the Central Florida area - there will be an HPV challenge/competition in a few weeks at UCF... If you're in the area, I'm sure you can coax someone to let you ride their vehicle (mind you - these are all non commercial hand made prototypes - so be careful).
