Thanks to ” recumbent cyclist ” , I read about the new strategy of the Shimano- company. Shimano is going to invest lots and lots of money to get all car-driving Rednecks on a bike. Therefore they need a bike which can be used without technical knowledge. So a “new” type of bicycle is going to be promoted andContinue reading ““Coasting””
While having a flu, I stayed in my bed for a good sweat and a lot of coughing. Between those bed-scenes, I read some other blogs on the Internet. I found one which is called : bikes? rubbish! It is actually a bicycle-blog with very high quality-photos. I am glad to see that there are people like Derek and Sara livingContinue reading “Xtra cycle”
Saturday March 31- 2007 we had a ride on our bicycles around the “Oosterschelde” in the Netherlands. It was a bright sunny and windy day. We met at Simon’s house in Heinkenszand. He planned a route of about 90 kilometers long. After the ride Simon stood us a Heineken in Heinekenszand 😉 When I gotContinue reading “Video”
Today a colleague a mine organised a ride around the Oosterschelde. I made a simple video during most of the day. Just have to add some music, upload it somewhere and then I can show it on this blog. Maybe tomorrow ! a ride in nice sunny weather, originally uploaded by wim harwig.
A nice video of recumbents going downhill in Winterberg (Germany).

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”

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 .
