Jo Routens 1960

This bicycle, build by Jo Routens in 1960, has the same age as me. I spend a big part of my time on this handmade randonneur. Unfortunately, the bicycle was badly damaged in a fire in the summer of 2018 and is waiting for a Phoenix treatment.

The bicycles

Dujardin 1950

The Dujardin is a beautiful build bicycle. Some may say, she is just a little bit to big for me, but I know, her souplesse and her strength brings me everywhere.

Cobra porteur

Cobra porteur

I build this porteur a few years ago to carry a gas bottle from the shop to my house, a 7km sloping ride. The markless pre ww2 frame is made out of rare lightweight Cobra tubes and has a 4 speed derailleur.

Peugeot PR10

Peugeot PR10

Not the top model of Peugeots product range from 1975, but absolutely one of my favorite bicycles. Equipped with the best parts you could get at that moment. I wish i had the time and lots of good weather to ride it more often.

Koe (cow)

Koe (cow)

Cows are friendly, curious and intelligent animals. I always have the strong urge to say hello to them when we meet along the way. Cows remember you and recognize you and I also believe they greet back. And if you’re lucky, you can see them licking each other like cats do.
It is sometimes hard to see how we treat them out of ignorance.
