Leaving Finland

My flight leaves in five hours. I’m flying to Bremen together with my friend, with whom we are renting a car for three days. This means I’ll start pedaling from Cologne or perhaps near Frankfurt after the World Cup finals. Whether I’ll bike straight to Czech Rep. or via Switzerland, depends on the car dropping location. So more updates after 11.07.
Go Holland!!!

    hi lukas,
    it was so nice to meet you here in cologne and arrange for taking you to your brand-new ‘vsf fahrradmanufaktur’ bicycle from ’stadtrad cologne’ equipped with the world-famous high-end rohloff hub, magura hs33 brake and son hub dynamo. an now on top of all of this a nokia battery charger – great! i am sure you will enjoy the ride with that hi-tec bicycle.
    have a safe trip – i will follow it on your homepage! and give my regards to anita + andi from austria when you see them (http://blog.nandita.at/).
    and thanks again for the kölsch!

      I thank you!!!! The bike has been perfect for the first 250km, I hope it’ll last at least 100 times as much. Keep in touch!
      (and I’m sorry for the bad result of the German football team)

    Hi Lukas,

    Everything ok with your N97 mini? Also curious to learn how the bike charger is working for you!

    Take care, be safe.

      nokia mini has been working perfectly. The charger on the other hand is still not working for my mobile. I’ll make some experiments tomorrow, and if it still misbehaving, I’ll contact an expert to fix the problem.
      But the trip has started really well, waiting for the real action with ovi maps…

      hah. Thanks Aldi. We shall remember this day as broken plastic part of the hub, and forgotten helmet. But above all, as the nice day at Veloplus 🙂
