Cool things coming in the next few weeks

This is just a beautiful photo of a Helkama Jopo | Photo by Janne Hellsten

Had to sacrifice some screen room for that amazing photo by Janne Hellsten of his Helkama bike, which is the other reason I’m so excited! Some little birds might have whispered secrets into our ears and it looks like I’ll get to fulfill one of my life long dreams and visit a working bicycle factory!

.. This is actually very silly, but my iTunes, which is on random is pumping out Bicycle Race from Queen ..

We also have more gear to review and more riding to do, as soon as my shoulder becomes more located in its right place. I’m sure Maarten also has lots of bike stories from his trip to Belgium and the Netherlands, since everybody liked his previous article so much.

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.
