We have one week to go before this girl of mine heads to Europe for 6 weeks to ride her bike.
She won a scholarship to ride in Europe to gain experience. She will be living in a beautiful house with other young cyclists and they will be riding the beautiful roads of Europe together and be learning in abundance. Her University cycling team are financially supporting her too as she will be riding in her varsity colors. My folks dairy is also helping fund her as she will be an ambassador for their Milk Gives you Go campaign when she gets back. She is also being sponsored her hydration product while she rides. I love that we started receiving calls of love and support for this incredible opportunity.
Thank you to all who have showed up for her and these incredible young riders. Getting our kids out there is all on our own bat and having this incredible opportunity and the bits of support means more to us than you will ever know.

She's puts it all on the line every single time, not only on the bike but her whole life and we do believe it's why good things happen to her. She's a gutsy girl. We have always known that we would have to keep our grip lose and it's how we have tried to raise our girls, always ready to release them to go. We are grateful she get's to have this incredible opportunity. It has always been our dream to see them fly. It doesn't come without trepidation and watching from the sidelines is by no means easy and sometimes we are deeply emotional at what she puts herself through. Thanks beautiful girl for choosing life everyday at 110%.
