12 years later; 10 rides in ʼs-Hertogenbosch

For this month of February I have prepared a special project for you. Around 2010, I documented 10 rides in my hometown of ʼs-Hertogenbosch. Last Summer – 12 years later – I filmed the same rides again and compared the two. Some of the streets and cycleways in these rides changed dramatically, and some remained remarkably the same. From Thursday 9 February I will publish one of the rides, every working day, until the last one is published on Wednesday 22 February. The first video is the trailer/teaser for this series.

Trailer – publishing date Wednesday 8 February 2023

  1. Why not a split screen between old and new and see them side by side? Of course, not every second will match (i.e. some rides slower than its historical counterpart, some faster) but I’m sure that you can put in gaps, where necessary!

      1. It’s okay! That’s the nature of older videos, more grainy. Good for contrast! Anyway it would be so cool. I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the two timelines except for the orange colour for the new paths! Well done, though.

  2. We’ll look forward to each one.
    Meanwhile, can you answer a question please Mark?
    In UK we have a problem with leaves and other debris left un-cleared on the few cycleways we have. What actions are taken in Netherlands to clear such hazards?

    1. In America we have adopt-a-bikepath were people volunteer to clear trash and leaves on a section of path. Do they have that in UK?
