Hidden surprise

Sometimes a hidden surprise pops up that brings back a lot of memories. Today my wife was organizing a folders containing some old genealogy information. Also in that folder was an old song from the Engineer Corps from the Dutch army. This made me remember my time in the army with the 11th Engineering Battalion in the late 80’s. Man what a long time ago! 🙄

E-bike? Not quite yet…

For a long time, I’ve tried to do my 60km commute as often by bike as possible. But I’m on the other side of the “magical” or “big” 50 now and struggling a bit with my body. So more and more people ask me why I don’t buy an electric assist bike. To be honest, I’ve been thinking about it now and then, but I don’t like the thought of it.

More and more e-bikes are making their way on the bike lanes. Young and old have embraced the bicycle with power assisted pedaling. But also more often, it looks like the e-bike riders can’t really deal with the difference in speed on the bike lane (specially the 45 kph pedelecs) or they think they have more rights than others. It seems like the e-bike doesn’t go well with social cycling. Ad to that that commercially there’s hardly any attention for other bicycles, and that is why I don’t like e-bikes. 😐

The weird thing about birthdays

On the last day of another year of living, some strange thoughts bubble up in my mind. One thing I’ve noticed over the years is that the younger you are the more you look forward to your birthday. And when you get older, that enthusiasm decreases very fast. Mental health on the other hand seems to go along a reverse line. When you’re young every birthday gets you a bit closer to adulthood and wisdom comes with age, or so they say. However, the older you get the bigger the change that infancy returns. For some a bit sooner than for others of course. 😉
