A few years ago I bought my bicycle and started riding the country. Distances were increasing rapidly and after 2 years I started doing ultra-distance cycling. That became my passion, my dream.
Ultra-distance cycling is expensive. As a hard-working independent web developer, with no fixed salary, my funds are not always guaranteed. I don’t have fancy sponsors which pay my gear and other costs for me.
I am going to ride Transcontinental Race no 5 this year. Starting in Geraardsbergen (Belgium), crossing the continent to Meteora (Greece). During the Transcontinental Race, I’ll need to spend large amounts of money on overpriced petrol station food, breakfast/lunch/dinner at restaurants, maybe accommodation (trying to ride with as little support as possible) and travel back home from Greece to the Netherlands.
Of course, while I’m racing for multiple weeks instead of working, the costs back at home need to be covered too. Insurance, house, telephone, etcetera.
It would help me a lot, if you could support me chasing and racing my dreams. Use the form below to support me using PayPal or offline if desired.
