Alpe d'HuZes 2022

Waarom ik meedoe aan Alpe d'HuZes

As a researcher, I am working on understanding how and why cancer develops. Our body is complex and as humans we are trying to understand the relationship between health and disease; yet, we have rather little knowledge. Therefore, others and I work hard every day to contribute a little bit more knowledge. Combined research efforts have lead to the development of new therapies and reduced cancer deaths. Despite these efforts, cancer remains a leading cause of death. Funding is crucial for more research so that hopefully one day, people will not suffer from cancer anymore. I will participate in Alpe d’Huzes, biking up the mountain Alpe d’Huez as often as I can, thereby reaching my mental and physical limits. I consider this a rather small sacrifice considering that cancer patients and their families reach their limits every day.

My Updates

The early bird..

... avoids the bad weather, at least this weekend ;). In the morning, I was biking through the Ooijpolder, of which big parts were fludded. Only some random trees give you an idea where the river normally runs.

A small ride on the 'waaldijk'

Today I went for a small 25km ride. It was so windy that I needed to focus on not being blown away...

The last ride of 2019

I used the last day of 2019 to see what Alpe d'HuZes will feel like. The Perth Hills are perfect for that with an incline of about 8%. Once I found a good rythm, the ride was quite nice. And once I reached the top, the view was stunning!

Swan river loop

Although I'm on Holidays now, I'm still training for Alpe d'HuZes. A couple of days ago I biked 60km around the Swan river in Perth. It was a beautiful ride, with awesome views on the city and the ocean.
