In the press, part 4

The magazine of the Swedish-speaking Martha orginization also wanted to interview Kaisa about her work and adventures on the bike. And what is the Martha organization, you ask? Well, it's an organisation that provides education and advisory service in matters related to home, family and society. Key words in all their activities are quality of life, welfare and sustainable development. Sounds like just the kind of people who could get into bike travel...

In the press, part 3

Kaisa was interviewed for the magazine of Finnish physiotherapists and brought her trusted bike to the photo shoot.

Seuraava etappi

Pyörät ovat käyneet reissun jäljiltä luottohuollossamme Porvoon Pyöräkeskuksessa ja saaneet puhtaat paperit. Nyt ne odottavat innokkaina eteisessä pääsevänsä pian taas lenkille.

Sunnuntaina Tour de Helsingin polkee ainakin kolme viidestä joukkueemme jäsenestä. Jos tämän blogin lukijoita on siellä paikalla, tulkaa nykäisemään hihasta!

This is what a Finnish man looks like

We can only imagine what the Russian men driving past us wearing their leather jackets, decorated jeans and shiny shoes thought of Leka when seeing him dressed in his blue cow outfit.

But we do know for a fact that it's extremely uncommon for grown men to wear shorts in the East. So Leka can take pride in the fact that he probably managed to shock the locals both with his cycling wear as well as his casual clothing. Not a small feat!
