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 .
This video is on youtube. I was amazed how many imagination there is for designing ice bikes ! There is no market for commercial products, so everybody is just creating some kind of ice bike and is having a lot of fun. Thank you Mary Arneson for making this video !

It was warm and dry yesterday. So a lot of bicyclists were out on the cycle-paths. A colleague of me also went to our work on his bicycle. I planned to practise with my photocamera and wanted to know how the video- mode would work while cycling on my bent. So here is the result 😉

Shit ! Had this one on my recumbent for only 2000 km. Fortunately I’ve seen this at home, on the last day of 2006 and not during a ride to my work. Already have the spare one on the bike. Before using the new tyre, I unsharpened the edges with a sandpaper. Hope it will help.
