I needed a new saddle for my Bullitt. The old one was made of plastic and because of the cracks in the deck I often got a wet butt from the rainwater that remained in the plastic foam for days on end. On the old Batavus I still have an old “Lepper” saddle that suits me well. I know a leatherContinue reading “new saddle”
An old Sparta bicycle (model Radar) was unused for a few years in the shed. I refurbished it a bit. I also made a box with wood from the wood storage and some old materials that were in the box called “do not yet throw away”. The wood had been stored in our wood storage for aboutContinue reading “Sparta Radar”
These button badges are from the time when all bicycles were still “green”. I found them in an old box stored in the shed … Today, the majority of new bicycles sold are electrically assisted and thus bicycles have become part of environmental pollution. It’s only a matter of time until all bicycles are electrically supported andContinue reading “old button badges”

Nothing is eternal … My father apparently had a nice luxury bike! But my grandfather was alreadyContinue reading “Cycling ancesters”
I made some photos …
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).
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”
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 … !@#$%^&*”
