Yes, traffic only in one direction. We used the track only for the 200 metres with flying start. There is an even better track some distance further, but we should evaluate.

Those are the Sijbrandij-Tempelman children so I assume it's one of Ymte's creations. Perhaps a more informed Netherlander will be along soon with some more reliable information.

"For the rear wheel a Sturmey Archer – SRC3 hub is used. It has 3 gears, back-pedal break and it’s equipped with a reverse gear, which is the most important feature for the children"

Wow - I saw it going backwards (reverse parking!) but didn't think too much about it. I suppose I assumed he had his feet on the ground, Flintstones style.

Somebody (who shall remain nameless, but was probably aged about 8) put a dirty great big hole in it by Sunday lunchtime  Shocked  Cry

It was patched up by teatime (useful stuff, gaffer tape...) Smile
