Running was my way to blow off steam with a preference for long distance running. I was forced to stop. The sports doctor advised me to take up cycling.
Two years ago, I was having a hard time with my knee. In an impulsive mood I bought a bike. At first, I went cycling alone but I soon decided to join a team.
I took up cycling about ten years ago. I used to ride my brother’s old racing bike and sort of grew into the sport one step at a time.
When riding your bike, you’re in the middle of nature. It’s like a totally new world opening up for you. It’s nice to have a shared passion as a couple.
The fun thing about cycling is that the more I do it, the better I become at it and the more I’m loving it. I also feel flattered by the fact that I can ride along with “the fast ones” now.
Cycling has taught me so much in so many ways. I get to know many new people. All of us have a shared passion, which creates an immediate bond.
I love variation. Sometimes I go cycling on my own, other times I might be joining a group. When I’m alone, I get to decide how fast or how slow I go. In a group I often push my boundaries, which is a good thing.
I work for a newspaper and they were looking for a cycling rookie. They needed a woman to test the newest Merckx ladies bike under intense supervision. And they quickly found me...
I grew up in a small town in Georgia, where I used to ride my bike around the town after school. When I went to college, I started mountain biking. Moving to New York made me switch to road cycling.
When a friend invited me out for a ride I dusted off my old mountain bike and went out with her. It was a real struggle: I was sweating, out of breath and slow… But I was hooked!
Cycling is incredibly relaxing. When I'm on my bike, I forget all my stress and worries for a moment. I relax and get new energy. I enjoy every ride and the women with whom I cycle have become good friends!
I was moving from Turnhout to Ghent, and cycling seemed the ideal way to get to know people in a totally new city. I bought myself a second-hand bike and I went on great bike adventures!
