Cycling is very much like football (the soccer kind) to me. Everyone can do it. It’s one of the most equal methods of transportation available to our species living on this planet. However, even being the capitalist I am, I realize that our cities and our culture has been evolving around the internal combustion engine.… Continue reading Cycling: We have an agenda
A lot of people know what a “camelback” is, a lot fewer have actually tried one. They are naturally referring to the hydration equipment manufacturer Camelbak, who at least to my knowledge were the first to popularize the hydration pack with a bladder for the liquid and a proper “straw” for sucking it out. Jogging… Continue reading Hydration review: Camelbak Blowfish
When I wrote my first post, I had already been cycling for a few weeks. Well, I had been at least trying hard, but it seemed like the gods of cycling were seriously trying to keep me away from the saddle. When I took my first proper fall in years, I had to spend a… Continue reading Archives: Ups and downs
It’s been exactly one hundred days since June 27th when I wrote the first article to our humble attempt to write down something about bikes. This post I’m writing now marks our 100th post as well, as we have so far been able to post something every day. Having blogged for several years now, it’s… Continue reading The 100th post at Coming Thru!
In my previous setup I carried everything in a bright yellow dry bag divers usually use, and from that activity I have two of these water and air proof bags that traveled with me on the rack you see in the photo above. I use two bungee straps with hooks to keep everything in place… Continue reading Saddle bag review: Topeak Aero Wedge Large
Today was an interesting day of commuting. It started yesterday, when I got fed up with feeling too much effort from my cycling, and I decided to lift my saddle even more. 10mm higher, yet again and you wouldn’t believe the difference. It was like gliding on clouds. This was naturally also due to having… Continue reading Commuting: A single day of wins and losses
According to (a quite boring) legend, galoshes were invented by an Englishman called Radley. The man suffered from rheumatism and wanted to keep his shoes dry, and back then people didn’t have too many pairs of shoes since mass fabrication wasn’t a trending topic at the time. In modern usage, galoshes are outer shoes worn… Continue reading Cold feet: Endura Neoprene road overshoes
I’m a bit torn at the moment as there are two riders with two different needs in me. If I just would commute directly from home to work and back, there wouldn’t be an issue. I could wear whatever spandex loving dream I would want to and be done with it very quickly. However, I… Continue reading Commuting: What to wear?
In the end of last week I started to feel more tired than usual and after our company’s autumn kick-off that went a bit longer than expected and I had even more fun than anticipated obviously resulted my stress hormones relaxing and giving in to the flu that my wife has had since last week.… Continue reading Not Commuting: Being sick sucks
One part in my realization of cooling weather was the fact that my back was freezing. None of the local shops had either good enough or big enough top layers for me to buy, so I had to order them online. Lucky for me, there were plenty of discounts available and I went with outdoor… Continue reading Dress up: Montane Velocity DT weatherproof jacket
