Welcome!

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.

The MTB series: an introduction

In the spirit of overused quotes, winter is coming, and in West European trend, it’s coming fast and full of horror.  If you would ask me to describe myself, one of the words in the list would be passionate. That’s the reason why I’ve been postponing getting on a MTB, because if I did, it […]

Sicily – a cycling gem

I’m addicted to the mountains but live in a flat country! Therefore, every chance I get, I pack up my bike and travel to places which feature at least some elevation in the landscape. Fortunately, I have a husband who shares my interest in cycling in the mountains. So, the basic ingredients for our vacations […]

TICC: a late little piece of summer.

I should have posted this blog a long time ago but finally, I found the time to type down what I had in mind. I already wrote a blog about ‘This Is Cambridge‘ in the past, with great pics from the included photoshoot as a result. But looking at the brand’s clothing lines, there was […]

Looking good, feeling good, riding fast.

  “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.”   One of the beautiful things about the sport of cycling is all the different facets to the actual ‘art’ of riding a bike. It starts with your choice of clothing, to how you wear your hair under your helmet, then […]

The Ardennes

The Ardennes       The Hardennes               Belgium at its best. Where Anna and Alejandro, the queen and the cannibal of Belgian’s hilliest region, graced the streets with their sweat and tears. Where the ‘bergs’ are the bergiest, and the applepie tastes the sweetest.  A one day trip to my favourite part […]

Exploring spring magic from behind bars

Spring has arrived and what a game changer it is! Not only for the cycling experience but for people in general. In Scandinavian countries, particularly I guess, spring has a very precious feeling to it. It’s like the return of everything hope and light. It triggers the feeling that everything good is in front of […]

Shimano Ambassador Camp Spain

Last weekend Shimano invited me to their yearly Ambassador Camp in Spain. In my mind I already saw us riding through the Spanish backcountry, climbing hills, sweating like crazy, drinking cold Coca Cola, eating ice cream and sharpening those tan lines. Well.. when we arrived at our location near Riaza Spain greeted us not with […]

The bullet cycling collection @Cirmoné

Cirmoné is “the place” to visit as a cyclist or creative person in general. It screams cycling all over the place. From a bike repare place, to a shop, to the perfect pit stop for a coffee. There is even a wooden indoor bicycle track! Home The bullet cycling collection. It’s been said more than […]

Mallorca training camp

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 […]

CYCLEUR de LUXE

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 […]

When flu keeps you off the bike

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 […]

Cois Cycling Legacy

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 […]

Maloja

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 […]

Dive into the MTB world

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 […]

Finding November motivation

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 […]
