I am preparing myself for the 202020 Velomobile Challenge that consists in cycling 20 countries in 2020. Minimum weight is important when cycling, that is why I am testing a new camera, the 257-gram Ricoh GR III with an APS-C sensor.

I have also made a short visit to The Netherlands where I met up with 154 velonauts at the Oliebollentocht. At the end of this entry you can find an amateur video that I made about that encounter. Check also out information about Utrecht that is published in the video description on YouTube.
