Cycling is female empowerment. It is riding into a new world and a new inner perception
My kit makes me feel like superwoman
Life on two wheels has already done so much for me. Above all the following: boosting self‑confidence. When I get on my bike in my kit, I feel like superwoman. I feel powerful and (until a car passing by too close gives me another fright😅) invincible.
Shut up, head.
All meaningless burdens are released from me. Instead, I can focus on what truly matters. For once I feel real freedom. Final acceleration at 30 kmh on the bike. An inner calmness keeps me pedalling.
This passion has also changed how I perceive myself. It’s not only the legs that are getting stronger! I know that I am doing this for me and that it does me good. I feel much more confident in my day‑to‑day life and less afraid of all the challenges life throws at me😎.
Historical female empowerment 🚲
Of course, this is not a new feeling. In the 19th century, bicycles became emblematic of women’s bid for freedom and self‑determination. From that time on, women developed a growing taste for independence. There is no doubt about where that wonderful and important empowerment came from.
Susan B. Anthony once said that the bicycle “has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. I feel you, Susan.
