Cobbles & bikes

With Paris – Roubaix in mind I immediately think of cobble’s. This is what I posted last year about cobbles and I still stand by every word I said.. Here are some tips for you to make your bike ride more comfortable, on the cobbles. Tires and their pressure I swear by continental 25mm wide […]

Recovery = body language

Is it the food, foam rolling, giving your favourite masseur a visit… So many sports, so many ways to recover. But what is good for you? For example, my body has a natural slow way of repairing. If I pay the gym a visit, it can take day’s before the soreness is out of my […]

Busy is no excuse not to ride

It all comes down to a proper schedule. Figure out what suits you best. Do you have a goal? And do you want to work towards that goal? Than you should take a calendar and start planning. What do you have to do on which day and include the hours of training you can do.  […]

Oat to the meal & water to heal

In women’s cycling we often have to start racing early. The main reason is the distance or there is an other event on the same day/place. Whatever the timetable may be, you have to eat a good meal so that your body has fuel for the race. You’re engine needs to be as filled as […]

How to reduce scars

We women often like to do some adventurous things or activities. That goes hand in hand with the principal of trial and error. – I ‘errored’ a lot and will still go full speed. Hard lessons aren’t always learned. We get scratched, bruised or worse burned. At least we try and nothing can hold us back. […]

The Comeback or the throwback (after my crash)?

It’s been a month, actually 6 weeks since my crash. I had to make up my mind of when I was coming back in the peloton. I know myself, if I plan this too much, I won’t go through with it. Just because I would push myself too much. Cycling is still a hobby. So […]
