MTB – 8 Jan 2016

I started off the year with such a good start, and the weather was so nice, that I didn’t want to do less than last week. So when I got to Duffel, this time without getting lost, I decided to take a left and cycle towards Mechelen before going home. I’m glad I did it, but…

Peugeot – 26 Dec 2015

Not a great time, but not a bad one either, considering that my previous serious racing ride (not counting a slow phone run in wet weather and civilian clothes) dates back from early October. The weather was great, but there was a strong wind that stubbornly seemed to challenge me in both directions for some reason. Still,…

Peugeot – 25 Nov 2015

My bike was finally ready (two broken spokes in the back wheel), and I needed to get a new battery for a phone, so I decided to ride my bike from the bike shop to the phone repair guy, and home again. I’m glad I have my bike back, but this wasn’t the weather for…

MTB – 8 Nov 2015

Nice ride, enjoying a fine autumn day. By myself this time because Annelies had gone horseback riding. The ‘Edegemse Bergen’ is a nice place for a MTB ride, with some great routes. The only problem is that because the soil is mostly sand, the terrain is terrible when it’s been wet — which of course damages…

MTB – 2 Nov 2016

This was the first time that Annelies and I took our mountainbikes on an actual Bloso MTB track in the neighborhood. It was good fun, but it took us a while to find the track, and then there was an error in the route: an arrow that pointed right, where there shouldn’t be an arrow at all.…

Introducing: The Bikes

  So these are the bikes! Please excuse the filters — as you might have guessed, these are Instagram pictures. I’ll try to use some cleaner ones in the future. I picked up cycling (as a sport) in 2014 when I bought a 1982 Peugeot racing bike. Mainly because I wanted to get into shape again, and…

Wasabi Mayonnaise

Wasabi mayonnaise is a great dip, that you can use in fish burgers, sushi, and just about anything else you’d like. As its name suggests, all you need to make wasabi mayonnaise is wasabi and mayonnaise. If you want, you can just use a some mayonnaise straight out of a jar, and add wasabi to…
