Riding: Kuninkaantie Ruska Ride

2 Comments 20 September 2010

Still feeling a bit bitter after not being able to ride the Tour de Helsinki the week before and with a nice Autumn day ahead it was time to crunch some kilometers. One of the more beautiful marked roads in the south of Finland is without a doubt the Kuninkaantie or “Kings Road” going all […]

Dress up: Montane Velocity DT weatherproof jacket

5 Comments 19 September 2010

One part in my realization of cooling weather was the fact that my back was freezing. None of the local shops had either good enough or big enough top layers for me to buy, so I had to order them online. Lucky for me, there were plenty of discounts available and I went with outdoor […]

Dress up: Helly Hansen LIFA base layers

5 Comments 18 September 2010

No one really likes the cold, not even Finns who have heat intolerance in their genes (seriously). That’s why my mom invented dressing up in layers to keep humankind warm, but not look like the Michelin man. There are a few schools out there: The Naturals vouch for different types of wool, where Merino is […]

Dress up: Endura Full Monty gloves

2 Comments 17 September 2010

As the colder weather is coming and I had to order something warmer, I went for the full-finger gloves from a UK company called Endura. The company is a solid performer for budget riders, but they don’t do it cheap. Far from it. In my last shipment there were quite a bit of Endura gear […]

Safety review: LAS Iceberg cycling helmet

No Comments 16 September 2010

Helmets, the epitome of safety throughout the history of man. They have a very simple job to do, to stop gravity tag-teaming with hard surfaces against your skull. Almost every sport that has any kind of physical requirements come with some kinds of helmets, from boxing to Aussie rules football and from rally racing to […]

Breaking records and winning yourself

4 Comments 15 September 2010

I didn’t have the option to ride to work in the first days of this week, so I decided to go for a ride on Sunday. My wife was having her colleagues visiting our house, so I had around three to four hours to kill. The longest distance I’ve covered in a single sitting before […]

Race video: City Sprint in Poland

No Comments 14 September 2010

We appreciate art when we see and we’re even happier to see cycling spread further and further every day. This footage is from the city of Jelenia Góra in South-West Poland close to the Czech Republic border. They held a city sprint in the old town riding with mountain bikes. I haven’t seen too many […]

Video: Tour de Helsinki pile-ups

No Comments 13 September 2010

Our friend Esko Lius posted this video in his Finnish language blog and it’s a brilliant video from the main pelotons of Tour de Helsinki. There were ten people hospitalized in the tour this year and most of them were in the faster groups, which is now more understandable because you have riders on the […]

Life Cycles is a wicked looking film created by Stance Films and supported by Shimano, Scott bikes and the awesome MTB site Pinkbike. They say it’s not just […]

Technique: I can haz slipstream

No Comments 11 September 2010

Now that I found a new route which is more populated in the times I’m commuting and one that is paved, I’ve had the chance to catch some slipstreams. To me, it seems funny how few people seem to realize that such a thing exists. There are a few men running the same commute who’ve […]

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.
