rain, mills and a Peka - the ride to the birth ground of my Simon
In my stable there is a frame of the Zaandam based builder Simon. On a Wednessday a couple weeks ago I decided for a ride to the little Zaandam shop. This with the aim get stories on Simon in general and possibly stories, tech talk and all other things that could be interesting on my specific Simon if they remembered it. A view glimpses of the Simon >>
It is quite a journey, but I had a great bike to cover it: the PEKA.
Weather looked good when I left and radar images on my laptop were also promissing. Reality was a bit different however.
Arrived in Zaandam I of course couldn't resist making some nice pics as proove I have really been there
PEKA in front of Zaandam wind mills >>
Than power of my batteries went low and camera switched out. But there were some more interesting things to see
Fortunately a nearby bike shop was so kind to sell me 2 Duracells for 2 euro.

The ride home was in better conditions and because of the distance I had enough time to dry.
How it went at the little Simon shop? Well, it appears to be closed each Wednessday afternoon.
