Friday video: Girl meets boy on a bike in Helsinki

It looks like an upside down boat with lamps

We’ve already told you how much we like received messages, comments, panties and other cool stuff from you guys and this week we got a video from an American couple. We actually had to bump out our hot BMX video for next Friday just to get this one out there, since it touched heart with summery images of Helsinki.

Last August, a couple from Washington DC – James and Erica, came to Scandinavia to work on an architectural installation. That would be the Kalevala (which is Finland’s national Epic) upside-down-boat-thingie in the picture there, and meet family as well. This was obvious to us, since she has a Finnish last name. James, on the other half, seems to have some relatives living in Sweden and their paths joined in Helsinki to ride around in rented bikes from a brilliant store called Greenbike right in the middle of Helsinki.

What I really like about this video is the fun and happiness and the summery Helsinki it shows. Last summer was awesome in here, even though it was a bit hot, but we really don’t mind.

Erica is a bike tourist who also has a blog telling about her journeys, which you should check out!

Have a great weekend y’all!

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.
