From management consultant to setting a new record!
I am Monika, also known as RAD Monika. I am an adventure cyclist, speaker and mentor.
I was a management consultant for a big IT corporation when I had this strong inner desire to make a change in my life. I wanted to pursue my biggest passion: adventure cycling.
I quit my job and moved with half of my bags to a place where I didn’t know anyone, never been before and didn’t speak the language.
Now, I guide my clients to achieve seemingly unreachable goals that enhance their quality of life while going for my own seemingly unattainable goals.
Why riding the route of the Vuelta?
On 25. August I will be riding every kilometer of one of the toughest professional races in world, the 3300km Vuelta a España, just hours beforehand. Just like the professional cyclists, I will endure the extreme heat in South of Spain, the incredible steep mountains in the North and suffer from the 150km+ days over 21 days. I will be the first woman in history riding every kilometer of The Vuelta a España at the same day as the professionals.
I will set a new record!
I didn’t realize this until recently because I never made this challenge about myself but about inspiring and empowering others to go for their challenge, to go out of their comfort zone and dare to try new things. I am a believer that anything is possible as long as you put your mind to it.
Every person who decides to go for a challenge and dare to go for their goals is a success of The Vuelta Ride. It is such an incredible rewarding feeling to be able to help and be part of their great achievement.
Cycling 1100km from Mallorca to Munich while visiting children hospitals
As preparation, I rode 5 days from Mallorca to Munich – with nothing but a little bag with a T-shirt and shorts. While wearing my Superwoman outfit I visited children hospitals to experience the other side what a big challenge can mean.
What I need your help with
My aim is to raise 20,000 Euro to document this film. The amount will cover the following:
Full-time professional film crew and photographer to follow me on this trip. Travel, accommodation and nutrition for Monika (me) and the cycling crew who will ride part of the challenge.
The documentary is about how anyone can be bold and fearless to go for their goals!
