Growing up in the Netherlands, biking was an everyday activity for me. But it was not until moving to California and participating in a 2001 Team in Training charity event that my love for biking really started. After 4 years of racing in the NCNCA, I wanted to share my experience in helping the next generation of cyclists to meet their goals. Whether you need help planning workouts and analyzing your ride data or are looking for a structured training plan, Dutch Diesel Cycling can help.
