Luckily there are 34 hours of video uploaded to Youtube every hour, which means we could be filtering you brilliant videos showing amazing riding until the end of time. This one is from the […]

November sucks: Living on planet Hoth

3 Comments 18 November 2010

Last winter was bordering on ridiculous, as it was like a winter imagined by an Australian tourist watching a Michael Bay movie on snow monsters. November is still supposed to be Autumn, even here in Finland. But yesterday’s forecast for the next ten days wasn’t very cheerful. The killer here regarding cycling is the wind […]

Well, since it’s already a miserable month here in Finland and my derriere is starting to look like I had a skin graft from Barney the purple dinosaur, I might as well add to the misery. We were just coming home from the opera and I finally had a camera to take a photo evidence […]

10 Comments 16 November 2010

Since I managed to mangle my wheels yesteday, I’ll have to take them to be trued and while I’m at it, I’m going to put studded tires on them. We all rode bikes to school and everywhere when we were kids, even during the winter and it was awesome. Sliding and throwing your tail as […]

November sucks: Slippery when wet

11 Comments 15 November 2010

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen the sun. It’s been even longer since I’ve taken a ride in the sun. Today was sunny, after a refreshing rain shower. I learned that there’s one thing more slippery than wet wood. Carbon soles on wet wood. The annoying thing is that I was carrying my […]

Exclusive video: Cycling in November sucks

9 Comments 13 November 2010

If you’re read our blog before, you know that I just got my helmet camera from GoPro a week ago and finally had the time to edit a short clip of a ride in quite terrible weather in November. As I’ve already mentioned, this month is probably the worst for riding as there’s anything from […]

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.
