Stephanie started cycling (mountainbike) as a teenager. After a break from the sport whilst studying and starting to work, she set herself a goal to get back on the bike to climb the famous Stelvio mountain. Motivated by the thrill and beauty of riding a road bike at beautiful destinations, she kept turning the pedals to reach new mountain summits.
Despite a long-term dream to ride a bicycle race, she hasn’t lined up yet as she’s been scared to take the step on her own. By joining the WMNride team, she finds the social and structural support she was looking for to take a first step into racing at the age of 30.
Stephanie is ride leader for the WMNride Antwerp community; with her enthusiasm and skills as a certified bike mechanic, she is looking forward to give trust and support during social community rides.
