Hi! I’m Mirjam.
Born in the Netherlands I grew up cycling.
We had no car.
I love to move.
Walked off as a toddler to be found by a nice lady who gave me ice-cream (and rang my mum who hadn’t yet missed me)
Hiked to Luxembourg at 17.
In 2001, after a failed attemped to study I decided to ‘take a holiday‘ before going to Uni.
And then forgot to return.
I had no idea! So I got a backpack and hitch-hiked around Europe.
In 2003 I picked up a bicycle and cycled to Morrocco.
That was it.
Hooked on Freedom.
10 years later I’m still happily rolling along.
My gear has changed and updated over the years. From everything 2nd hand and as cheap as possible to pretty flash with a couple of sponsors on board.
I’ve gone through 7 rackety old bikes, some with, some without gears until in 2009 Multicycle offered me a bike of theirs!
I have been extremely lucky and am still happy everyday because without bike-break-down-worries I can get different places and slightly more remote. As I did when I cycled the dirt-roads of outback Australia. One of many highlights!
And since 2014 Dutch company AGU is providing me with clothes and panniers.
Nothing can stop me now!
When I need money I work.
In September 2016 me has become we
Life is great!
Life is beautiful!
Don’t waste it.
Thanks for stopping by!
