Barbara joined Kring WMNride at the very first ride in March 2019. In less than a year, she developed from a complete beginner to a cherished ride leader for the Brussels based team. She always finds a reason to cycle: to explore new places, to escape the daily routines, to eat chocolate and to beat the couch and the elements.
As a ride leader, Barbara wants to share her passion for cycling with other women and create a warm community around the sport. In 2019 she reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro on a mountainbike. For the new decade, she has plenty of new challenging adventures on her mind. On top of her list for 2020 is to ride her first Granfondo challenge and represent Team Kring at the Brussels City Crit. Her ambitions to explore the world by bike are undoubtedly fed by her professional background as a teacher in geography. At the same time, her educational mindset is reflected in her caring ride leader style, certified by FCWB.
