I am planning to document some of the happening this year once again. If you’re able to be there ; be there ! You can find all theContinue reading “Cycle Vision 2008”
I made a short video in which you see just some cyclists on a bike path near a busy intersection in Vlissingen, the Netherlands. It was warm and sunny weather and because it was noon you see relatively more children. The way cyclists dress and behave is different compared to countries with less bicycle density.Continue reading “Cycling the Dutch way …..”
Barbara Buatois is trying a new bike, the l’Altair, which she will be using for a new speed record on 12 Juli. Francesco Russo tried the same in his machine last summer on the same track, the CERAM speedway about 40 kilometers near Paris in France.
When I first saw these videos, I had to laugh ! They show the British bicycle culture as it was way back in 1955. If you’re too old to die young, then you’ll go back in memory when seeing these two vid’s ……… Nowadays there are a lot of car-drivers in England who just hateContinue reading “Good old cycling times.”
Someone said I was in my fallus-symbol, when he saw me waiting in my velomobile for the red traffic light. 😉
Only for standard sized bicycles ….. What to do with a recumbent ?
We were in Utrecht last Saturday afternoon. Just wandering through the inner city, alongside the many canals. Utrecht is a typical Dutch city with lots of students and therefore a lot of bicycles. Every day is “individual mass” in this town ! A short video ;
This photo is made by Bas de Meijer, a professional photographer who is also a recumbent cyclist. More photos can be found here .
During Easter I went to the “Harskamperdennen”, a camping at the Veluwe where a lot of other recumbent cyclists were together for three nights. This year it was freezing cold and the weatherforecast said there would be snow-showers…….. We were lucky, because at the times we planned a visit to the museum on Saturday andContinue reading “Eastermeeting 2008”
Please do the test here and find out if your able to take part in the daily traffic jam, without hitting any bicyclists. Yesterday I was (again) in a situation I felt like “a moonwalking bear” ; the car driver looked me straight into my eyes but totally denied my presence at the bicycle pathContinue reading “do the test”
Some bikes are sexy and some talk about bike porn. for more details see ; here
We live in a world of economics. Everything is expressed in money. Even the time I watch television is of some worth to the advertising company’s. The medical health care, the lack of space on high ways during peak-hour, the seconds that it takes to prepare a McDonalds-menu, here in the Netherlands there even existsContinue reading “fabulous people”
I used a Tenax mounting for my windscreen on the velomobile. It takes a few seconds to place or remove it :
Today I bought these sandals. I only heard positive things about these sandals in velomobiles by users. So now I can find out myself….. I have thought of the simple idea to make something like Gary did…….. ……but when I realized that Rob Thomson already tested the Shimano sandels to the extreme on his travelsContinue reading “Shimano sandal with cleat”
