I immediately think of the following video when people ask me what “headwindcycling” means. Tomorrow I’ll be there, making photos of these sportsmen on Gazelle bikes (the simple model that is common in the Netherlands).
Too bad I didn’t have my camera with me … the “photos” of the phone will have to do it … It was a beautiful sunrise! How much money would an average person want to spend to experience this beautiful sunset while cycling in a comfortable velomobile? I earned that money this morning on topContinue reading “Cycling home after the nightshift”
Jan Trenson made a very nice video of the last “oliebollentocht”. I couldn’t be with them, but hope to participate the next time in December 2020 … Ever since the first “oliebollentocht”, it has been a tradition for participants to cycle from their home to the trip, to ride the trip themselves and then cycleContinue reading “Biggest velomobile gathering in the world: “Oliebollentocht “”
The most recent edition of Ligfiets& is on our kitchen table again. It is nice to read the article in which it is recalled that the association was established 35 years ago. A nice photo of a number of people who took the lead at the start of the Dutch recumbent culture.It reminds me ofContinue reading “35 years ago …”
It is really nice to take a look at the Strava heat map. From all public information that the users of Strava collect, a “heat map” is made. Not only can the favorite routes be extracted from this, but policymakers can also get relevant information they need to improve the infrastructure. https://www.strava.com/heatmap#7.16/3.18014/51.53014/hot/all By switching betweenContinue reading “Strava heatmap”
I like cycling in wintertime…. but I hate flat tyres during this time of the year … so playing safe with Marathon Plus Yes, I know the plus also stand for the resistance 😉
I was curious how it works … Relive. So I tried it once during a commuting ride. Click on the picture for an impression.
Even though the working conditions are very different, cycling to work and bicycle parking places are still the same … history repeats itself in that regard. But I don’t regret returning to my old workplace … even though the ability to cycle more and more often was the main goal. In this video, you canContinue reading “recurrence”
Last month I realized that despite the medication I continued to have high blood pressure. At the same time, I also experienced the disadvantages of this medication (side effects). So I decided to use the best medicine I used before in my life … CYCLING !For that I had to make a rigorous decision …Continue reading “I now have a different employer …”
Marjan participated in the climate march in Middelburg (in the pouring rain) March 15, 2019 photo GeTe
They participated in the Dutch championship Headwind Cycling 2018.
While I was working on the many photos I made at the Dutch Championships Headwindcycling, one of my external hard discs crashed … It proves how important it is not to rely on just one memory! I didn’t lose any photos, but I have to do all the post-processing once more … Fortunately, I’m justContinue reading “hard disc crashed … !@#$%^&*”
4 years ago it was like this ….. just plain simple Dutch bicycles and a strong headwind !
The weather was nice today. That’s why I decided to take my velomobile out of the cobwebs and see what it takes to get it “up and running”. The fastest way is to pump up the tires, get in the velomobile and cycle around Walcheren. and then see what’s going wrong ….
