Cyclists are our heroes.
And not only the famous and influential,
but also the unknown, unsung,
every day rider.
Be it commuter or courier
road, mountain or cargobike
grocery shopping or bikepacking
to school or the office
through wind and rain.
This is a celebration of all those cyclists, each with a unique story and a different reason for (almost) every day riding.

Wout van Aert, 28 years old. Monument winner, front man, cyclocross World Champion, time trial specialist, lead-out man, sprinter, Tour de France stage winner, ... there is not much that Wout can’t do. He is a rider through and through, riding his bike day in, day out, he wouldn’t want it any other way. If anyone personifies the highest level of #everydayriding, it is Wout van Aert. That’s why we met up with him in Alicante where the team was at training camp and asked him what #everydayriding means to him.
