Project: Blijven Trappen (Keep Pedaling)
This is the manual for finding solitude. A love song about the soft murmur of rubber on sticky tarmac. The destruction of everyone that tries to stay on your wheel. It’s an everyday commute to another town and every day-long travel through nature. This is the novel about all the never ending battles against gusts of wind you haven’t had yet.
Thesis: Epos (Epic)
From my admiration for cycling, the question arose: is the cyclist a modern hero? To find out, I first looked into ways heroes are portrayed in art and (art)history, and what the definition of a modern day hero is.
