Another attempt to ride around the SloterplasApril 23, 2009
Yesterday Eric Jan Krupe came to visit us. He’s currently very busy setting a few businesses up apart from helping us to deal with some loose (financial and organizational) ends . We went for a trip by bike around the Sloterplas (that lies in front of our house) and this time I made sure we went the shortest possible way without wandering astray (I still have vivid memories about falling the first time).
It was the first time that I was wearing my orange-red helmet in public and in the beginning I was paying more attention to the people around us than to my cycling. I found that most of the people saw my helmet but only a few (mostly children) stared at me. Later I didn’t pay attention anymore. When we got back from the 6.5km bike-trip I found that I had not fallen at all!
