First ride on my Rowingbike Thys 209

Last Sunday I received my new bike and yesterday afternoon I was able to ride it for the first time. Fortunately the roads were mostly clean. In some spots there was still some snow, but for 99% the roads were clean. The last time I rode a rowingbike was about half year ago, but this time it went quite well. Only getting started and riding at slow speeds still needs a bit of practice. This Monday I'm leaving for the Oliebollentocht in Tilburg (in the South of The Netherlands), I will be back on Thursday.


Companyweekend Ermerstrand

Just like last your I went to The Lake Cabin near Erm for the weekend to spend some time with my colleagues. Of course I took my velomobile for a ride that way, it's only about 67 kilometers. The speed was quite good (average of 29.8 km/h) so after 2 hours and 20 minutes I arrived at the known location. Quickly secured the bike, took a shower and waited for the BBQ to start. And what better way to kill some time to take some nice pictures.


Velomobilemeeting Giessen 2010 (video)

It's been two weeks since I came back from my trip to Giessen, but now it's ready... the clips I've made from the climbing, descent et cetera. Climbing was about 7-8 km/h, but the descent was more like 70-80 km/h (topspeed 84 km/h). Furthermore you'll see images of the castle we were sleeping in and a situation where two drivers were not thinking very well when overtaking us.
