Race video: City Sprint in Poland

0 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 of these city sprints and I hope we’d see more of them in Finland as well as urban riding is always fun when you can do it in a controlled environment!

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.
