Casa Bike Locks

Casa bike locks are old and tricky. So far, though, every one I've tried has a trick to getting it open, quickly and reliably. Even if you've already read this, feel free to ask me or someone else who's read this or been shown these tricks - sometimes a personal demonstration helps, too. Enjoy:

Six o' clock this morning they woke up (well, that's what they said) and I just called them (Rene and Davide): they were already cycling north of Alkmaar...

We found a nice host who is ok with us 'squatting' his place and cooking for him, and there are old friends to meet.
