Car-Sick Glasgow | Documenting the atrocious conditions for cyclists and pedestrians in Scotland's largest city
Wednesday, 19 May 2010
On Sunday we went on the Sinnertocht. A 60 km trip around the Groningse countryside organised by Jan and Harma de Vries of Sinner Ligfietsen.
At last it really looked like spring had arrived, and we had glorious weather, though also fairly stiff headwinds. This is frequently a problem in this area. There are no hills to slow down the wind.
I rode my old Pashley PDQ and Judy rode a Sinner Spirit. She's tried a few others, but thinks this could well really be the right touring bike for her. It's a short wheelbase bike with full suspension, and a comfortable seat neither too close to nor too far from the ground.
