FW20 Women Cycling Collection

ROYAL
WINTER RIDE
It’s moments like this that I realise this is why I love riding my bike so much!

My friends and I huddle together sharing a thermos of coffee as the sun breaks through the trees thawing the frost. Our eyes might be sleepy, but there is an energy bubbling between us, excited to venture into the forest before everyone else wakes.

A typical day in the Netherlands, showers come and go.

And when not chasing Jamie, we’re chasing the sun.

The forest slowly warms up.

Well, maybe the route wasn’t planned so well… No worries, we can hike a bike for a bit and share some chocolate while we’re at it.

Thanks to Maarten de Groot for capturing our ride in the enchanted decor of ‘Kroondomein het Loo’. This Royal Estate is one of the largest nature reserves in the Netherlands and feels, this day more than ever, very royal!
