Yesterday I’ve heard that Sheldon Brown had a serious heart attack and died………….. With him we loose a great cyclist………… Now the only thing we can do to honour him is to visit his pages as a homage.
My neighbour took this photo when I showed him my Quest.
I was touring with Zilt through Zeeland.
My cleats were worn after 7 years of use. I use them every day and relatively do a lot of walking. The cleats make easy contact with the ground because the rubber sole of my Shimano shoes is not thick enough to prevent it.
Marjan made a decision…….She bought a Sparta Ithaka . She used the “National Bicycle Plan“. With the national bicycle plan you can buy via your employer a complete bicycle with insurance and by doing so, have tax advantage. You pay back with gross salary (or holiday pay, overtime etc.) to your employer. Because you payContinue reading “Sparta Ithaka”
People who are curious to see how the dutch infrastructure for bicycle-paths looks like, can have a look at this video. The video is 25 minutes long. In the video you see all different kinds of roads and cycling paths situated in the northern part of the Netherlands (Groningen). Some recumbent-riders have formed an email-groupContinue reading “Dutch infrastructure for cyclists.”
Marjan needs a new bicycle, so we are orientating for the possibilities and models. New techniques and methods nowaday’s in the bicycle-shops ! The “Fietsenmakker ” is our nearest bicycle- shop and is the best in our town, so we were looking around there. Didn’t make a choice yet, so still thinking and searching……… TheContinue reading “a new bicycle”
Recumbent riders are stubborn, self-opinionated cyclists. They often do their own thing and don’t give sh.t what others think about it. In this video there is such a guy who returns to the design of the ancient high-bi and shows that he made a practical easy-to-use recumbent out of it.
Shimano/YouTube comp: the shortlist The Quickrelease.tv bicycle short video competition had a whopping 134 entries by the close of play on August 30th. These 134 have been whittled down to nine.

Take a bike tour along several trails around Los Angeles with Jonathan Dietch on his Bachetta recumbent.
Nice videos ! because I plan to ride the “oliebollentocht” on 28 December , I’ll add this video for a good impression of the ride which is being held in the coldest part of the year (typical quest-conditions)
I ordered a Quest at velomobiel.nl and found out that I was supposed to wait for three years according to the order-list. Luckily it took only two years in practice, because many buyers order their second, third or more quests for a certain year. So when velomobiel.nl cleaned up their order-list it showed mine toContinue reading “maiden trip from Dronten to Vlissingen”
Dag Wim, Je fiets staat al op de wielen, afleveren op donderdag gaat wel lukken. Groeten, Ymte The most pleasant email since a long time………….. 😉
In issue 27 of Velovision ( http://www.velovision.com ) is an article about helmet cameras. The safety angle was a new aspect for me…. Just use a 2 Gigabyte memory-card during your ride and if nothing happens, just delete it. But if you register a dangerous traffic-situation on your camera, you have the best means toContinue reading “Velovision”
Quest number 215 is being build this week. About 6000 euro’s have left our bank-account today 😦 , so next week I’ll be able to make the maiden-voyage from Dronten to Vlissingen 😉 . This first ride will be about 300 / 350 km. Daylight lasts till 18.30, so the LED-lightning system will have toContinue reading “Quest 215”
