second ride this year …

It is clear that my condition has deteriorated rapidly. I have to do a lot more mileage with my velomobile … So I started today again with good intentions 😉 But as always I bring my camera … the sun was shining, but it was a bit foggy and cold and you can clearly seeContinue reading “second ride this year …”

Vlissingen, 1984.

In 1984, the year in which George Orwell foresaw a totally different world, the Vereniging Nederlandse Loodsen Sociëteit existed for 100 years and that fact was celebrated exuberantly with all kinds of festivities. At the moment I am digitizing my old negatives from that year 1984, because our society has now come to resemble theContinue reading “Vlissingen, 1984.”

I am happy that I was well protected by my fairing, but I am disappointed that some of the carbon-fairing was damaged. I will takeContinue reading “a cosy ride”

a short velomobile ride

I went cycling for a few hours … And when I got home there was still no president of the United States of America. The current one is telling so many lies on television that I no longer dare to call him president. For me, the worst part is that apparently half of the USAContinue reading “a short velomobile ride”

I was lucky today

Today I haphazardly started cycling in my velomobile. According to the weather forecast, it would not rain until 5:00 pm, but my entire ride the dark clouds threatened to release their many water sooner. Incredibly nice weather for taking pictures, but due to the fact that I had left my hood at home and cycled “convertible”, I wasContinue reading “I was lucky today”
