When I am on my recumbent, this 20 inch wheel is right between my legs. In fact just in front of my chimes 😉 So when the surface of the road is wet, the front tyre swings a lot of fine moisture just in front of me.

He planned a route of about 90 kilometers long. After the ride Simon stood us a Heineken in Heinekenszand 😉 When I gotContinue reading “Video”
