Mountain biking with one arm? Why not.

No Comments 10 April 2012

Tom Wheeler got four of the five nerves controlling his right arm severed and his hand is and will be mostly paralyzed for the rest of his life. Still that doesn’t Tom from riding his bike, in the forest with the boys. Total respect. Check out part two from Vimeo by clicking right about here. […]

Friday video: Bicycle repair man with Monty Python

No Comments 06 April 2012

There are only a few comedy laws, but most of them involve the Monty Python troupe. Since it’s Easter, we wanted to be a bit sillier than usual, so we are giving you the classic Bicycle repair man sketch from Monty Python’s Flying Circus that came out about 50 years ago, which you can see […]

Love local bike shops and they love you back

No Comments 04 April 2012

We’ve always loved our local bike shops, they are not only beautiful and talented, running a bike shop requires passion and dedication like no other. We’ve written about them several times (like here, here and especially here) and we are glad to be doing it again. We have a friend called Nelli, a Finn who set […]

Spring has been cancelled

No Comments 02 April 2012

You know that feeling of Spring blooming. The days get longer and the temperature climbs slowly but steadily towards double digits and it’s time to clean the bikes up. Lube and clean the chains, index those cassettes properly and then put them on the balcony to let the sun gently dry your clean babies up. […]

Pregnant cycling

5 Comments 12 March 2012

Now you might say that this topic is not a subtle hint to my grown belly or an usual subject for us, but it has become a question I need your help with. My wife and me will become happy biking parents in July, but before that we want to cycle as long as we […]

Where would you bike if you would die tomorrow?

No Comments 08 March 2012

If you would realize that you would die exactly a week from now, no chance, just 100% certain death. Let’s say a meteorite is hitting the earth and we’re going to join the dinosaurs next Thursday. You would have five days to do everything else you ever wanted to do and you would have one day […]

Trail to Verbier – Ardennes Training Camp

No Comments 22 July 2011

Preparing ourselves for the Grand Raid Verbier on the 20th of August this is the first in a series of posts. We got ourselves a nice cottage next to Grand-Halleux, collected 5 bikers and filled our fridge with after-ride rewards local style: Chimay trappist beers. Mind you we didn’t get the rewards that easily, a […]

Bicycle and Gear Reviews, Our biker lives

Love, sheep.

2 Comments 19 July 2011

Cycling on snow is done for the year and I’m already thinking about the next tour, but I’ll continue with a number of posts that (god willing and a fast infield) will be of help to the first-time tourer and beginner-type cyclist such as myself. Wool. Wool fabric, and more specifically, merino (as in soft) […]

Advice for the first-time tourer: uh… “down there”

5 Comments 14 July 2011

Right.  I’m half-expecting to be flogged with an inner tube for TMI, but let’s be adult and sensible and learn how to avoid saddle sores. If you are affronted by discussions of the derriere, go to the next post now. In most of this series I’m trying to cover the kind of information I really, […]

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.
