German Daredevil Travels Around Belarus By Banana Velomobile

German traveler Jascha Beuttler is driving through Belarus by a yellow velomobile that speeds up to 50 km/h and turns heads of locals by its banana-like shape and colour.

On 30 November, the enthusiast set off from the German city of Porta Westfalica. He drove through central Germany, Poland, and nine days later entered Belarus through the Brest checkpoint.

On his twitter accounte, he explained that he was not allowed to cross the border on a cycle car, so he had to go by a passing VW minibus for €50.

“I couldn’t find a restaurant with local food in the city center, so I had to break with a tradition and went to eat burgers,” Jascha shared his first impressions of Brest and was a bit upset with the fact that even young people hardly speak English in Belarus.

In Brest, the daredevil visited a fortress, explored the surroundings, and then headed to the M1 highway. The traveler reached Kobrin, turned onto the M10 and drove towards Pinsk. On the way, he stopped in Drogichin, where he was stopped by the traffic police.
