Video: Tour de Helsinki pile-ups

0 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 wrong side of the road, hitting curbs and just being quite aggressive.

No commuting because of morning meetings, but that means that I’ll actually manage to go for evening rides. Here’s hoping that the clothing shipment will arrive later today so life will be even better! Speaking of videos, I just ordered a HD helmet cam from GoPro – we should have that in for a review in a week or two!

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.
