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 […]

Chasing memorable adventures

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, […]

Is Sa Calobra on your bucket list yet?

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 importance of strength and conditioning for cyclists

I generally love every season because I think every season has something super magical and special but still, my favorite season is winter […]

Embracing you for you; stand out and shine!

Here’s a shout out to any woman or girl who doesn’t think she fits in to the crowd and is constantly asking herself in what ways she can change, in the hope that means she will be accepted as part of a group. Own yourself. Develop. Grow. Build. But don’t you change for anyone just […]

Throwing out the word DIET!

I despise the word diet. By definition diet is defined as “the kinds of food that a person, animal, or community habitually eats”. Let me be more specific, I don’t particularly like the modern trends associated with “dieting” and what it does to us personally and as a community. I have been caught up in […]
