Xid (“exit”) refers to saying goodbye to our comfortable life. Cycling is our way of life. We slip back to three basic needs: eating, drinking and sleeping.
We are really looking forward to:
the people we meet
the nature we discover
the help we give
the animals we see
the elements we feel
I love living a meaningfull life, freedom, nature and sports.
I am adventurous and enjoy discovering new things.
I love the sun, the beach and the sea. I like to watch the (falling) stars and the full moon.
I like to sing (in the shower). I know a lot of lyrics by heart. I'd rather go to a concert of Coldplay than to a festival.
I am what they call a hard worker and I love the motto "a deal's a deal". After working 12 years in sales, I was looking for less commerce and more meaning.
Giving massages is my specialty. I really enjoy getting one as well.
I focus on sponsor requests, press and social media.
I am calm, self-conscious, (un)patient, sweet, passionate, sporty, witty, adventurous, quirky, enthusiastic, honest, reliable, persistent, tireless, forgetful, slow, naive and not very structured.
I have an allergy for the words "you must". I choose my own way, and I'm authentic and independent.
I love freedom, sports (swimming and cycling), traveling, salsa dancing, exciting stories, John Irving, Quintin Tarantino. But most of all I love Linda.
I like white sheets and black coffee. I prefer being in nature and not in a crowded city. I love café De Pieter, swimming pool Jekerdal and my three beautiful daughters.
I love challenges, single malt Scottish peat whiskey, dark chocolate, good food, cooking and of course my mother's apple pie and chicken soup.
I focus on navigation and bicycle maintenance.
