Quite some changes have taken place on this site since its young inception!
For several years now I have been blogging on a personal note as "Wielrennerke", which is Dutch for "wheelrunner" or "bicycle racer"...

For those that don't know me, the sport of cycling has been a passion of mine since childhood, my dad and brothers Berry and Emiel didn't give me another choice!
Born and raised in the Netherlands, it goes without saying that I had to play soccer!
My soccer career spanned 20 years (from age 4 till 24).
It was ended by an 18-wheeler accident in Sweden, involving me on a motorcyle...

About 5 1/2 years ago my dear friend, (and at the time year-long tennis partner),
Mark Miller opened Precision Bikes, on Johnson Street, Lafayette, LA.
It was through Mark's encouragement and Precision Bikes' great selection of bikes,
that I got involved in cycling again. Bikes are nice subjects to collect.....
I can't imagine life without riding/racing bicycles since!
I also have been honored to co-sponsor the Precision Bikes Racing Team, of which I am a proud member. My logo is found on the left sleeve of the uniforms.

Since the beginning of 2009 I have operated as 'webmaster' for Mark Miller,
owner of Precision Bikes, which has become the "2nd to none" bikeshop in the South!
