Silly Danish woman.

Hi All,

I am new to this forum. But not new to cycling.

I am an Ironman Certified Coach and a personal trainer for several triathletes as well as teaching swimming at the local triathlon club. (Do not worry, I am not using this forum as a signpost for what I do. It is simply a fact I am stating).

Besides; I love to cycle and I do not mind it being far. Though right now I am in the process of getting back to riding efter 1,5 year in the "cold" due to cervical disc disease and some nerve symptoms. Had a disk replacement surgery back in August, of 2016, and now well on my way to regain my prior strength and cycling.

I do triathlons - sprint, olympic and half Ironman distances. I participate in races with the length of typical bravets. And I have ridden from one end of the country to the other in 5 day. Though I am not competitive. Just out for some fun.

Would not mind making an unsupported "Around Denmark" bikerace - for beginners into this fun sport. Already have the route - 1576 km on the most interesting paths around the coasts. Not too much climbing. So it would be perfect for beginners wanting to try a longer distance. You can see it on GPSies - it is called "Round Denmark" (I am not allowed to post links before I have posted 10 time )

OK, I did not know this to be a problem. Just fine. I just wanted to share a route with someone going to Denmark. So I had to make all those posts to be able to share ;-)
