Let me start by introducing myself! I'm Petra from Deventer, The Netherlands. 40 years old...no, young actually! I have two kids, 18 (boy) and 12 (girl) and I'm with the luckiest man alive I've got the cutest dog ever, a Bernese Mountain dog called Jia. I'm a credit manager for a small international company with it's head office in Deventer. I commute to work on a regular bike 4 days a week and I've just started mountain biking last month. Getting fit and improving my health is key, so biking seemed a good idea! And it sooo is! I've lived in Deventer for 15 years now and just recently discovered places and tracks I've never been before, just by getting on my bike. Nature itself here in Holland isn't that spectacular...except when you're cycling through the woods! It's amazing and I love it. Bike roads are usually good over here (almost everybody in the Netherlands owns a bike, about 14 million bikes registered on 17 million people) so you can cycle anywhere you want. The weather isn't that good lately, that's a shame sometimes. Cold, windy and rainy is not my type of weather...at all! Hope summer kicks in soon! On to more miles!
