One of my neighbours is using this cart to take their dog outside town. The dog can step in and out on her own, when the bicycle is standing still. When traveling, she can sit and lend against one of the sides. Because the cart is just small enough for the dog to stand, sheContinue reading “cart”
I saw this internet site a long time ago. Despite the fact that I live in the Netherlands, where there are lots and lots of bicycle paths, I think that the info on this site can’t be read too much ! Therefore I added it to my blogroll. This is a must read site too !
YouTube has an area where members can join “Groups” (it’s free) to share videos with other group members . There is also a recumbent group ! If you have videos made while riding your recumbent, please upload them to YouTube and share them inside this group. If you just like to have a view, thisContinue reading “Lots and lots of videos with recumbents !”
I bought this bidon holder at Bever Zwerfsport. It is suitable to hold the 1,5 liter bottles. Now I just have to find the best place to mount it on my bike. It’s called the “Minoura PET picker” (AB-1500) specially disigned for the 1 and 1,5 liter lemonade bottles. So I can use a cheap PETContinue reading “bidon holder”
There is always a guy in some shed who tries to invent the wheel again and from that startingpoint also creates a whole new bicycle ! I think it is just nice to see this bicycle and trying to find out how it works. See for yourself on the BBC news on this link ! Don’t sayContinue reading “cycle sideways ?”
I worked in the nightshift and was commuting home in the early morning on my recumbent. The sunrise was beautifull and made clear that wintertime was ending. Days are getting longer from now on. During that hour it takes me to get home, the sky turns from dark to bright. I had my camera withContinue reading “here comes the sun”
Some people asked me where to find the old promo-video for RAAM out of 2004. They wanted to see the awefull movie again ! Well you can find it here. And all the other info for RAAM is here.
The 17-th of Februari 2007 the “monster track” race is organised in New York City again ! I can’t wait to see the photos and videos on the internet. Always admire the stupid bravery of the bike messengers ! I wonder why these alleycat-races are unknown in Amsterdam; or am I wrong ? I ‘dContinue reading “alleycat race NYC 2007 is coming soon !”
It’s snowing in Vlissingen. There has been sprinkled a lot of salt on the roads. Without those actions it would be impossible for cardrivers to keep driving, but the salt is ruining the bike-stuff, like the chain and the derailleur. Not to mention what salt does to the aluminium wheels. So I was glad (andContinue reading “Snow in Vlissingen”
Koga Miyata made only 50 bicycles of the model they named “the Spyker” (Koga Aeroblade). Handmade and because of all the rarity very expensive (12.500 euro). The sultan of Brunei has one and also the King of Jordan. How does it look ? You can find a video (spoken in Dutch) here .
The 1000 meters sprint and 40 minutes criterium in the Velodrome in Alkmaar (the Netherlands) where Hans Wessels showed he was in better shape than Ymte Sijbrandij ! You can find the results here .
I took my photo-camera and made some video’s during my commute. It is 25 kilometers (one-way) and the weather was bright sunny .
I think that this movie gives a good expression of the feeling I get on my recumbent. Unfortunately I do not own a videocamera to make my own movies, but if I had one it would look the same.
I just got these homologations (200 and 300 km’s) by “slow-mail” yesterday. The guys from AUDAX expect you to do the brevet on your bicycle in the shortest possible time, but then it takes them almost 2 years to send the homologation ! I like the French, nobody gets them speedy exept when they’re onContinue reading “homologation”
