One of the most fun things to do is professional posing. It doesn’t pay, except in smiles. Recently I was asked by my local bikeshop to be a part of a series where I’d be in the winter chapter: gravel. After my polite attempts to point out that I wasn’t very fit, nor very sleek looking for a video, were rejected, we picked a date to do the filming. Filmmaker Lars Veenstra was dreaming of early morning shots and winter circumstances.
My friend Marieke agreed to join me. Her alarm went off at 5am, mine at 5:50. We met at 7 am in the woods and we were awarded inches of fresh snow, clear skies and a pretty sunrise. In terms of filming conditions, I think Lars was extremely pleased, and we will have a very nice video to look forward to.
