(E)-Biking

As some of you might now, I live in the Netherlands and biking is very popular here. I’ve also taken you with me on some of my “biking adventures” before (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjcueeGVg268mZFcGjbU427kn3BDuItCR).

A few days ago I got the opportunity to try out someone’s e-bike for a couple of days and I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. These bikes are great! It really takes cycling to a whole new level, a faster one that is!

Picture of the day

Very nice weather

Even though summer is really over now, the weather is actually very nice and it motivated me to go biking today. I went to the city to do a bit of window shopping and actually ended up buying something at the store where a few weeks ago I had my shopping adventure. It went much better this time. Or… good enough at least. 😉 I still prefer online shopping, but the analog way also has its perks!

Beach and Sea

A windy day at the beach, perfect for Kite surfing apparently!

I went to the beach yesterday and made a quick video of my bike ride and the nice scenery I came across along the way. There was a market in the city and I decided to have a walk around there with my bike, so I could also capture it on camera. You can watch the video here: http://youtu.be/EbN-AIk6YME

Weak Central Coherence and Asperger’s Syndrome / Autism


Normally, I carefully prepare all my bike rides beforehand with Google Maps and Street View to minimize unexpected events and get myself acquainted with some of the local road rules. This time, I tried to be spontaneous and decided to take an unprepared left turn. As a result I came across two traffic signs that I interpreted literally, which almost caused me to crash with my bike… Might have been more fun if I would’ve actually hit the signs that warned me for this, but I’m glad I didn’t. 🙂 Continue reading

To the beach

A few days ago I went cycling to the beach and filmed everything with my GoPro camera mounted on my bike.

I also brought my digital camera with me and took some pictures during my bike ride. I really enjoyed being able to go the beach even though it was during the weekend and very busy with lots of tourists around. Hope to do this again some time when it’s a bit less crowded. 🙂
