I combined business and pleasure. The business was the SPEZI show in Germersheim of special bicycles where I represented SinnerBikes and the pleasure was riding there in a Mango Sport. In total I cycled over 1200km in 6 days Groningen-Germersheim-Groningen. On day three I encountered a German recumbent trike rider (Carsten on his new Velomo trike) who was also cycling to Spezi and we decided to ride together. This video is an account of that day, riding from Bingen to Germersheim.
To accommodate the trike rider, who was not very keen on cycling between cars, we rode mostly on cyclepaths and beautiful cycle routes. It was a very scenic route indeed, a lot of it was along the Selztal: a small river valley that ends in the Rhine.
Testing my cheapo rig made from pvc pipe with which I can hold the camera stable with two hands. The difference with filming with the camera in my hand is stunning. Check out the "frugal filmmaker" on YouTube how to make such a stabilizer rig.
These are the images of the most exciting moments of the criterium in Groningen (Netherlands) The roundcourse is 1,6km (1mile) and the race lasted 25laps (40km/25miles)
The winner had an average speed of 49,6km/h or 31mph and was riding a Quest Velomobile carrying two on-board cameras. In the very last round, two Quests fight for the victory. More info on: ligfiets.net/agenda/race.php?id=314
