And I own a Bkool Smart Pro Trainer since very recently to keep fit in winter and train for the Tour de l'Etape.

Hi BNA Women!

I'm a newbie to cycling, did a lot 30 years ago and nothing in between.

Location?
Australian vagabond

Road, Mountain, Track... what's your style?
In 1986 i began buying rusty old fixies and rebuilding them for pocket money. I fell in love with a "10 speed racer" i completely rebuilt and painted metalic red and we rode everywhere around Lake Macquarie and Newcastle. We left the guys eating our dust everyday after school was out. In 88-90 i road the tracks and hardtop in the Kosciuszko NP extensively after moving there. Loved both mountain bike and road touring.

Current bike/s?
Eva - 2017 blue Surly disc trucker


Riding since?

About to start my first serious tour this summer

Riding because?
It is naturally the next big adventure after walking 17,000kms solo unsupported around Australia. All the way around i met riders from all over the world doing short tours, crossings or laps.
For most of the walk i knew i would be riding next.
During the walk i was limited by speed and water so some places that called to me were passed by, mostly those old corrugated red dirt highways through the outback. Now i'm going back to ride them.
I follow/ed on insta a collection of amazing women riding. I was especially inspired by Fredricka Ek and Ann Johansson.

Favourite ride
Pending

Occupation?
I just became the 1st woman to walk around Australia solo unaccompanied 3 weeks ago so i'm hoping soon i can say writer and speaker ;)

Goals?
Ride around Australia


Most embarrassing moment on the bike?

Pending

Best moment on the bike?
Summer riding in the alps, mostly the part after the climb!


Which section have you spent most of your time in on the forums? Or where do you suspect you'll spend most your time?

Yet to explore everything

I hope to meet many of you as i ride :)
