ODE  TO  THE  WINTER CYCLIST

The trees are becoming bare, and so are the roads. The twilight is gaining ground. The daylight still squeezes in, but with increasing effort.

Nature dozes off, the world turns inwards, and the only thing you hear is the slow, cracking sound of frost.  

And then, suddenly: a different sound. A soft hum.
It’s the tires of the winter cyclist.

THE WINTER CYCLIST RIDES,
RAIN OR SHINE.

For the winter cyclist, any type of weather is cycling weather.

NO TEMPERATURE IS CHALLENGING.

Every season is part of the cycling year. No breaks, no pauses forced by a calendar. The winter cyclist might only stop for a cup of tea. However, it’s the cold that truly warms his heart.

THE WINTER CYCLIST RIDES

First, the toes make themselves felt. Shortly thereafter, the nose and fingers join in with the tingling.  But the winter cyclist rides. Lacks nothing to stand the test.

NEVER IN HIBERNATION

The winter cyclist doesn’t dream about tomorrow, as he is too busy with the joys of today.

YES, IT'S COLD.
YES, IT'S DARK.
YES, IT'S QUIET.
AND YES, HE'S ENJOYING HIMSELF.

The winter cyclist wakes up and, without opening the curtains, he knows it’s cycling weather again.

For many cyclists, winter is not an invitation to go cycling. They do not see winter as a cycling season and therefore opt for hibernation… 

We help you to embrace the winter!

Athletes with the Rogelli DNA take adventage of every season to go out and discover new places, dominate roads and enjoy the sport. Even in pooring rain, strong wind or extreme cold. Even then they enjoy the distance.

Get inspired by personal stories of athletes who embrace the winter.

I am a real winter person and love the winter landscapes in the Netherlands. These are magically beautiful. As if I am cycling in a painting of a winter landscape.

Cycling in winter, wonderful. Preferably dry and very cold, for me, those are the perfect ingredients to make a nice winter cycling trip.

While the morning dew leaves slowly, the frost on the deserted fields looks like a picturesque scene, you are already standing on the pedals. Abandoned roads, from winding roads to viewless parts, the empire for you alone.
The warmth of your body appears in clouds around you. With each rotation you make more pace, the blood creeps where it can’t go and particularly on days like these. The urge to really know winter. The urge to discover.
