As female cyclists we are one big family. We are women from all over the world, with the same mind set, the same interest, the same struggles and the same joys. Women of all ages, sizes and cultures but the love for our bike in common. One characteristic that stands out; we all know how to #BeTOUGH.

2018 as my first year of racing on the half IRONMAN distance was quite spectacular as the year started with an(other) injury and ended with the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship – a rollercoaster ride of a year and hard to beat. So what about 2019? New years and new goals often bring a lot of […]
Flats, heels, boots, ballets, sandals, clogs, platforms, wedges, strappy, buckled, lace-ups, peep-toes,… I LOVE shoes. I feel my heart race when I look at shoes I am considering buying and feel great happiness when I wear them the first time. I know that I need to have shoes like I know that I need to […]
How I’ve learned to make the most of forced breaks from cycling Apologies! This post has only a little cycling in it! However, I’m sure it’s recognisable to some of you. It’s about how to survive when you catch the flu. Oh yeah, it’s that season and it sure has been particularly tough on me […]
As a bunch of cycling freaks we want to have our bikes with us everywhere we go. Even if taking it to bed was an option, we probably would. So next to all the chamois (in style of course) time, wearing bike inspired casual clothes is making a statement. We love cycling! And let this […]
The start In a way to escape the uninspiring mass tourism focused, posh alpine towns. Bored from all the empty chitchat at party after party and the weary of the fight to be seen among and belong to the “in crowd” people who’s goal it is to be beautiful by low. Founder Peter searched for […]
When you are a thrill seeker and just riding on two wheels is to boring you can dive into the MTB scene. Fresh air becomes fresher when you are surrounded by pine trees, and the ride becomes more exciting as you pedal up and down those muddy mountains. The more you ride, the better you will […]
It’s easy to get out on the bike when the days are long and the sun is shining, providing you enviable tan lines. But what to do when days are getting shorter? When the sun only appears as you browse through memory lane on your Instagram account. Here’s an idea: Change the scenery and organize a weekend get-away […]
One month ago I experienced one of the biggest races of races of our sports, the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. And when I look back to it now, it still sounds surreal that I’ve been there. ..the weeks before: After my last race before the World Champs, an Olympic distance […]
Few things make me happier than riding my bike! I’ve been a road cyclist for 10 years and since I live in a very small country, I can do most rides around here blindfolded. So, whenever I get the chance to ride new locations, I’m off! During last couple of years, I’ve been in Italy, […]
La Ride des Belles Filles was all about climbing at least 985m. I did 1593 – and here’s how it was. Luckily I was on Tenerife during the period of La Ride so I could do it on my most favorite streets. We started in a place called Chio to ride up to the Teide National […]
On September 9, a group of brave ladies set out to conquer La Ride in Copenhagen. Those familiar with Denmark’s geography will know that the country is completely flat and offers no real climbs, whatsoever. So to make the ride challenging and interesting, we included local challenges, such as gravel and back roads. We have limited tarmac roads […]
Scorpion I’ve been lucky once again. A post package arrived. It had the logo of a scorpion and was filled with fancy packed cycling clothing. Time for a photo shoot! Doing photo shoots is not my speciality. It always makes me pretty insecure. But when you can wear clothing that fits perfectly well and has […]
Short and steep. Long and persistent. Climbs come in all shapes and sizes and I embrace and enjoy them all. Each type offers its own kind of surprises and challenges. Some climbs might be short but so steep they make you wonder what is the steepest rules of gravity allow to climb. Well, obviously, you […]

The first thing I think about before getting on my bike is: ‘What should I wear today?’ A long sleeved jersey? Or yet go for short sleeves? An extra layer? Take my neck warmer? Pffff that stress of choices is almost as bad as pre-race nerves. Nothing unimportant though because clothing is a determining factor […]
