RONALD VD BOON
PRO BIKE TOOL AMBASSADOR
As a mechanical and electrical designer, I spend most of my days behind my desk – however I commute 50km in total every day, whether rain or shine. I find riding to and from work a great way of unwinding my body and mind and feeling fresh for my family, and is a perfect way to enjoy nature. I also love my Sunday rides around the trails, pushing myself as hard as I can, reminding myself of my old days as an MTB and cyclocross racer.
WHO'S MY SPORTING HERO?
I have two sports hero's, one is from back in the day when I started riding MTB and that's John Tomac. Really cool guy. The second one is from a new era, Mathieu vd Poel.
THE YEAR AHEAD?
My first goal for this year will extend to next year. I have an idea to setup a ride for charity around the Netherlands (1250km) or from Amsterdam to Berlin (800km), being ridden non-stop. This will involve lots of training and planning. My second goal is to ride more with my family in multiple parts of the Netherlands.
