In Helsinki I can really tell we’re in the thick of the beginning of the bicycle season, because I am swearing an awful lot on my bicycle. Clueless pedestrians not yet accustomed to looking before they step into a bike lane (despite having had years to learn), drivers on edge from having cyclists zip around […]

Canadians, Finns and Belgians get along for many reasons, but especially for the amber nectar of gods. Beer has been a part of cycling as long as, well, since bikes been along. Beer used to be the replacement for water after all and it was also the main energy drink on long bike treks. Even […]

As my Surly was built originally to be the Ultimate Commuter, moving to the city has created new needs. It’s not about having the best overall performance, but some comfort is appreciated as well. Helsinki is full of very irritating cobble stones and tram tracks and they are hell to ride on, no matter the […]

Now this is just a treat, I love history, bikes and manufacturing. This combines them all! A video from the British Council, showing the manufacturing process of Raleigh bicycle factory right after the war in 1945. 17 minutes of full on awesome. More like this please! Even the ending of the film is full of […]

If you have a cup of coffee (or a beer) and three minutes time, enjoy watching this. I know that’s what we’ll do. The film is shot and edited by Sam Clark and the rider featured is no other than Phillip Williams. Then there’s also the bike squid, a functional art piece by Susan Robb. […]

Here’s something you don’t much think about before your first tour: how you’re going to figure out where the hell you are. I have to start this, of course, with a wee caveat since nowadays most people have GPS built in to their phones, and a lot of cyclists use computers to navigate. I am […]

Road cycling is quite different from any other form of cycling, mostly because of the long durations spent on the bike. Just like road shoes are different by being lighter and stiffer than shoes designed for rougher terrains, road pedals are different as well. The purpose of mountain bike pedals is to hold the foot […]

I’ve always been a gadget lover and even more, I’ve always loved data and information. When it came to moving a lot more than before, I wanted to motivate myself by starting to measure my progress. Since I was also running, I got me a Garmin Forerunner. It had GPS, could be attached to the […]

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.
