ODO = 33920 kilometer. So the average is 10.000 km per year with my velomobile since October 2007. According to Fietsen Scoort I did 8750 kilometers in 2010. That means that I do most kilometers during my commute and just minor recreational distances. For my shopping-rides I’m using the Bullitt and it turned out toContinue reading “33920”
Because I’m staying inside our warm house for a few days resting with a trifling fever, I’m surfing and stumbling on the internet. By doing so, I get to see all kinds of unimportant but nice blogs with unimportant but nice stories. In the days b.i. (before internet) these kind of stories were in “ReadersContinue reading “The Japan Alps, The Place To Keep Cool!”
It’s a pity I could’t join the gang. The video that Theo Mol took during the tour shows how an “oliebollentocht” is supposed to be ….. Lots of snow, cold wind, frozen rivers and velomobiles all around (and a lot of digital cameras) ! In the velomobile-scene it’s quite normal that photos and videos areContinue reading “It’s a pity”
I planned to join the “oliebollentocht” this year. Had to work a few night-shifts till 27 december and thought that I would be able to make the trip to Tilburg, visit family in Eindhoven after the tour and return home the next day. But it turned out that my body had other plans. After theContinue reading “No “oliebollentocht” for me”

We were one of their victims …… In the afternoon I made an impression of the road conditions during my commute ….. Road conditions in Zeeland are okay, but there has been a lot of snow inContinue reading “busy times”
I’m planning to join the oliebollentocht on 28 December, so I hope all the snow will be gone within ten days …………. But for now it seems that we will have a white Christmas. The cold and snow doesn’t stop Marjan using her bicycle for her daily commute. Although it takes a while to getContinue reading “Merry Christmas”
I took this photo on my commute home after the late-shift. It was cold, so I stayed in my velomobile.
I just liked this a lot ………….
I thought it was about time to digitalize the old tapes. Some tapes were used to record the voices of my daughters. 20 years ago ! But the inevitable happened …………….. !
Every year I think of the way he died. Free minds are outlawed in the United States of America, even with their “First Amendment“. Many years ago it was shown in the last scene of “Easy Rider”. In fact; when I’m on the road in my velomobile, I experience similar situations (okay, only without theContinue reading “John”
So now Sinterklaas has left the country, it’s time to prepare for Christmas. I found this old Christmas song produced by Caesar many years ago. I still like it somehow. I’ll collect some Christmas songs and burn them on a DVD. I used to do it in the eighties (on tapes) and nineties (on CD)Continue reading “Commercial-Christmas”
