Date and Venue set for Cycle Vision 2007
2 & 3 of June 2007
Sloten Sports Park, Nr Amsterdam

For those not in the know Cycle Vision is an international Human Powered Vehicle Race Meet. It's well worth a visit to see all the weird and wonderfull machinery in action, plus visit the try out area and trade stands.

international Human Powered Vehicle


The concept of human power is one all too easily forgotten
by CTCers. Club tradition is usually sufficient ... but to newer
members like myself, only 10-15 years of it sporadically, and only
a member for specific expedition purposes, it is easily forgotten.

HPV should be etched on everybody's push bike/trike.

There are a great many inducements to do other things.... non human.

Thanks Andrew - I'll check them out.

The campsite on the south east side of Amsterdam is good but quite a way from Sloten - which I believe is on the west side and quite a way out.
Did some drawings of the windmill there a couple of years ago. Its the last working pumping mill in Amsterdam.
Going down through France in May - might loop back to see the HPV's on the way home - perhaps I'll see you there.
