Our biker lives

Approaching our 200th post

0 Comments 13 July 2011

The summers are very nice here in Finland

It’s been about a year now since we started this process of documenting things we like about cycling and it’s amazing to be writing the 199th post to be published. Tomorrow’s post by Johanna will be number two hundred and we think that’s a lot. A lot has happened in the last year: Both Maarten and me changed jobs, got more responsibility and had to choose whether we spend our time riding or writing. There’s really only one answer to that question. We have new bikes we haven’t told you about and so much gear we hardly have even mentioned.

The weather has been awesome here in Finland: Very warm temperatures (sometimes a bit too warm) and beautiful, sunny days like you can see in the photo above.

Now we’re just waiting for those rainy days so we can write some reviews on the gear we have and the rides we’ve done!

Until then, we’d love to hear from you and hope you enjoy Johanna’s touring posts this and next week.

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.
