Alina is no stranger to adventure, and her philosophy is simple, “I just try and get away from the cars!”. We feel you, Alina. We feel you. We chatted with her about her new life in Girona and her recent bikepacking trip to Belgium.
On the topic of her new home, Girona, she had only praise and admiration for the city and its cyclists. “It’s like nowhere I’ve ever been before. Everyone cycles, everyone wants to help you out, most people are somehow involved in cycling and the community, so I feel like I fit right in. Also, unlike where I cycled back home in Germany, I would say that in Girona there is sometimes a 60:40 ratio of women to men out cycling. It probably doesn’t have anything to do with gender to be honest, it’s just an amazing place to ride, and if you love cycling, that’s where you go”. Community is what attracts the cyclists who flock to this city each year, not to mention the endless roads and trails between mar i muntanya.
