Monday Motivation ! Day dreaming of the next race ! - I had some fun riding up to #langnauimemmental to cheer for @k_asgreen in the first two stages of @tourdesuisse_official, but I have to be honest ! Iโ€™d preferred to race as well! side lining is never a fun thing when you like the racing part so much more than all the rest! - races are a huge motivator! - Iโ€™m stoked because next one will be in Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜ . ๐Ÿ“ธ @arne_mill

As today is environment day, I took sometime to think about how big of a part is actually as to play in our daily life! Obviously as procyclist, we get to spend most of our day surrounded by nature and we get to appreciate all it as to offer! On the other hand, all of the traveling we have to do to go from one race to an other makes our carbon footprint very high also counting all of the energy is required to make everything about procycling possible! We have to realize how much our way of living has an impact on the environment and try to take steps to minimize it. Recycling, not using plastic bags for grocery produces, trying to use my things and fix them until the very last option, using a reusable water bottle and coffe cup, buying only local/ fare trade/ secondhand clothes are just a few of the things I try to implement in my daily life! I may not be the very best in all aspects of my life but i really try to make an efforts on the things I do have control on. What are the steps you do? - I hope this post and today will inspire you to rethink some of the habits you may have and could change to protect our environment. I decided to share some of my favourite photos of the places I ride. THIS WORLD IS SO BEAUTIFUL! letโ€™s all make an effort to keep it that way ๐Ÿ˜‰ - If youโ€™d like to check out your personal carbon footprint, hereโ€™s a link (also in my bio): https://co2.myclimate.org/en/footprint_calculators/new - @hardyccphotos #1

Ima mountain kinda gal, ima stage race kinda lover ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

Despite it all, things always come around! And somethings are so obvious you see it in your soup! - Give some shit, care about what and who you love. LOVE, spread some receive some. - Be Happy - Happy is fast

The universe expending, means that at earlier times, Objects/ person would have been closer together - There is no absolute time. Instead, each individual has his own personal mesure of time that depends on where he is and how he is moving. . . ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ“ธ @velofocus . . ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ“ Hawking . . #mondaymotivation #physics #stephenhawking #spaceandtime #wntrotor #wwt #china #fromwhereiride #roadslikethese #friends #time #outdoors #outsideisfree #happyisfast #builttolast #ridefightwin #procycling
