At the end of November, I signed up for the EY Cycling Challenge 2021 very enthusiastically, without giving it too much thought. Due to the pandemic, all sports events were canceled and I was ready to take on something new. At the end of December, I received the happy news that I had been selected for the challenge.

Last week we were FINALLY spoiled with true cycling weather. Just in time for a motivational boost, because Friday is THE day. I have cursed my enthusiasm from November several times and will probably do so again a few times the coming weekend 😊 But I’m very excited with healthy nerves whether I will be able to stand my ground in the pack of (mostly) male colleagues.
Now, 5 months and 78 bike rides later
I am ready, we are ready!
Now, 5 months and 78 bike rides later I am ready, we are ready! I want to thank the EY sponsoring partners already for this journey and all EY colleagues that have joined us for the virtual challenges for Make-a-Wish foundation.
Let’s do this!!
