Izabela Kaczmarek (1972) Scheidam (Holland)
Hi, my name is Izabela and I’m 45 years old. I was born in Poland but for 16 years i live in the Netherlands.
At the beginning it was hard to live far away from my family and friends. I tried to do something to make my life more full, not sad and grey.
I was always active and I loved sport and so that’s the direction i took. I used to go to the gym and play squash but I always looked up to cyclists. That was my dream, dream that finally came to life. I am riding bicycle for 5 years now. I feel free and fulfilled. Bicycle gives me strength and allows me to forget about my worries. Cycling is a big part of my life now. 3 years ago i had an accident, I was hit by a car and it was very traumatic experience, I thought I wouldn’t ride again but my love to cycling was stronger.
I love my bicycle and I love to cycle and I respect all the people who do that too, because it is not only a pleasure but also a hard work.
