Elena Duarte (1986) Gijón, Asturias (Spain)
My name is Elena, but all my friends call me Ele. I consider myself luckythat I was born and raised in Asturias, northern Spain. It is a beautiful and natural region, where the highest mountains and the sea are only a fewkilometers apart. Perfect for cycling!
Sport is a very important part of my life. I can be found hiking, running, playing padel… I spend most of my free time on the bike, tho.
I started cycling around six years ago, thanks to my life partner. It was mtbat first, but soon I realized I had to give the road bike a try. So I did and I haven’t stopped since then.
I’m not a pro, I’m not interested in races and I don’t know much aboutbikes. I just know I love cycling and how it clears my mind. Many people worry about ( km, wats, elev) but I don’t although I admit they can be pretty cool and rewarding, I think theres no need to obsess. I ridedepending on my mood, my time or my energie. That’s it.
It’s a pleasure to be part of such a great cycling community.
Have a good ride you all!
