Tim Krabbé on Riding Jun 30, 2014

Bike racing can change your life, no matter how old you are:

“Riding was inspired by Tim’s participation in the Tour of Flanders 2014 cyclo-tourist ride of 245 km. At the age of 71, Tim is still an active cyclist. His novel The Rider, first published in 1978 and translated into English in 2002, is considered to be “the best writing on the subjective experience of cycle-racing”.

In this short documentary we interweave Tim’s moving story with historical photos from his ‘first racing life’ and his participation in the Tour of Flanders, which symbolizes his ‘second racing life’.”

    That was excellent, thanks for sharing. I own and have read that book many times. One of the best.

    This is really, really good, but where is the rider from Cycles Goff?
