Today I cycled a bit through the industrial area of Vlissingen. A lot has changed. And before new installations can be built, the old one must first be safely demolished. EPZ’s coal-fired power plant has been out of operation for years and its chimney is now being demolished. Of all Thermphos buildings, only the skeletonContinue reading “Cycling in Vlissingen-Oost”
It was busy on the bike path, but not too busy … and I was in no rush 😉Too bad that the electrically assisted bicycles hit the majority …
Yesterday I had a nice ride in my velomobile. It was not about speed, but about looking at the Zeeland landscape with the eyes of an “actual” photographer. Many horizontal lines in which vertical lines immediately attract attention.The so-called “fertile soil” in Zeeland needs a lot of “fertilizer” and despite the many salty water thatContinue reading “Zeeland”
Full of melancholy I cycled home yesterday after the last night shift … it could be the last … The “phosphoric acid plant” is now blowing the last vapor from its chimney … maybe a few more days … then the factory will die. What a differance compared to the situation on Juli 2010 …Continue reading “melancholy”

How long can you continue driving with the original velomobile rims? Today I lost confidence and decided to renew them …
I used recumbents for many years for my commuting … a few videos made with simple cameras.
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”
I was curious how it works … Relive. So I tried it once during a commuting ride. Click on the picture for an impression.
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 ….

all kind of recumbents and velomobiles …
