Commuting: Why so serious?

No Comments 30 August 2010

When I picture a kid riding a bicycle, I see him with a big smile trying to go as fast as the bike goes. He is happy because he is the lord of the wind, rolling thunder and Lance Armstrong all in one. I also picture the kid usually without a helmet, unfortunately. Yet, when […]

Commuting: The bike says no

2 Comments 27 August 2010

I’ll have to say, the beginning with the Ultimate Commuter hasn’t actually been very ultimate, to say the least. After only four days of riding I got my first flat, and I shrugged it off as a freak accident and luckily I had my brother to bail me out that time as I was quite […]

Video: Does two wrongs make a right?

No Comments 26 August 2010

Here’s another great example of how to promote safe cycling together with safe pedestrian action. The guy rides his bike without a helmet, against traffic and meets a gentleman coming behind a car, not using a crosswalk. Idiocy ensues. I do like the way they wrote the thing off and luckily no one gets seriously […]

About Comingthru

Coming Thru (or Coming Through - as that URL was taken) is a daily updated bike magazine - a collection of writings and links that relate to biking in its every form. The idea started from when Maarten met Markus decided to finally start collecting the things we like about bikes and talk about our everyday adventures in dodging moving objects at high speeds.The site is run by a collage of cyclists, most notably by Canadian Johanna MacDonald, Belgian Maarten Patteeuw and Finnish Markus Sandelin.

It all started in the spring of 2010, after a record breaking snowy winter when Markus bought a house 25 kilometers from the office and decided to handle the commuting with a bicycle. It turned out the bike wasn’t up to standards for that kind of stress and the first weeks were more tragicomic than glorious. Thus the idea began to brew to actually document this journey.
