Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Riding the Festive 500 in one big fat ride from Paris (FR) to Haarlem (NL)

Riding the Festive 500 in one big fat ride from Paris (FR) to Haarlem (NL) - #inonego from Rotgans & Rotgans on Vimeo.
Somewhere during Festive 500 2012 my tortured mind came up with the idea to simply do Festive 500 in one ride and “get it over with”. A year later that idea hasn’t left my head. So that’s where this brilliant (and by brilliant, i mean stupid) idea to ride Festive 500 in one ‘go’ came from. And to make this ‘easier’ I figured out that I’d start somewhere that is about 500 km from home and ride back. Paris was as random as any other '500km away from home' location could have been. Only later the route turned out to coincide with the prevailing wind.

This is our story.
