Being a really cool cyclist with years of experience behind, he highly values the ability to move and finds movement his own kind of freedom and pure happiness. We decided to interview Jeroen to know his story and inspire our readers to do what you love and enjoy every single moment of your life. Stick around to know how our insoles help Jeroen to perform his favorite activities.
What’s your goal behind cycling?
I’ve been cycling for about 40 years (I started at 8). When I was younger, my goal of course was to become a professional cyclist. But at the age of 21, I faced a choice of continuing cycling or getting the proper education. So, I chose the second option, and now my goal is a) to stay fit and b) to do something that is a real passion for me. I cycle with friends and always take great pleasure in it.
What’s the best of being a cyclist?
For me, it’s stretching your goals every time when you’re doing it, it’s pushing yourself beyond your limits, it’s continuing despite any obstacles.
How did you choose this activity? What motivated you when you were choosing it?
Yeah, that’s a good question! (laughing). When I was younger, perhaps 7 years old, there was road bicycle racing in the Netherlands. The colors, sounds, speed, and stylish clothes of cyclists attracted me THAT much that I decided to take it up myself.
