Mother's Day Gift Guide for Cyclist Mums - Eat Sleep Cycle

Mother’s Day is this Sunday in the UK (don’t panic if you’re reading this in the States). After giving you a Christmas gift guide for cyclists and some romantic Valentine’s cycling gift ideas there was no way we were going to forget about our mums. And so, to celebrate the awesome cyclist mums out there we’ve compiled a gift guide and interviewed some mums for an insight into what being a cyclist and a mum entails!

Girona Cycling Mums

Considering Girona is such a hub of cycling it is no surprise that some of those riders are mothers too! So we asked two, Nancy and Silvia, about life as a cycling mum!

Nancy

Q. How long have you been cycling for?
A. I learned how to ride a bike when I was 3 years old and I haven’t stopped ever since! I did some racing when I was younger but now I just go out for the simple pleasure of riding my bike.

Q. How many children do you have?
A. I have a gorgeous 1 year old boy.

Q. How has being a mum changed your riding habits?
A. The only thing that’s really changed is that I don’t have as much time as I did before but I know that it will change when Miki gets older.

Q. Do you ride with your children?
A. Cycling to me is a family affair, I remember riding after school with my sisters and every weekend with my dad and those are the best memories I have growing up, we had a lot of fun and I hope to continue the tradition when my son is old enough to join me.

Q. What advice would you give about being a cycling mum?
A. If you’re a new mum like I am just take your time and start slowly until you’re ready, the form will come back! Taking time for yourself is important and your children will definitely benefit from that since they’ll have a happier mummy.

Q. How long have you been cycling for?
A. I have always cycled (leisure) but serious road cycling (and loving it) last year just after my divorce (you can also say it was my meditation/healing process to digest the divorce and consequently the new life ahead).

Q. How many children do you have?
A. I have 2 boys of 10 and 12.

Q. How has being a mum changed your cycling habits?
A. Being a mum has not really changed anything, I have always managed to escape for me “me time”!

Q. Do you ride with your children?
A. I do ride with my children (the oldest is more of a trial motorbike kind of guy) and last time I rode with them I dragged them on the carrilet to sant feliu and they loved it.

Q. What advice would you give about being a cycling mum?
A. I don’t really have advice but I am just constantly telling them(my kids) how good is to go on a bike and the benefit that brings you into your daily life. Definitely living in Girona helps a lot being a cycling mum as the life here is super easy! With and without a bike.
