I believe that if everybody rode a bike to work our life would be much better. As a bike lover, I started with Bikestein.com to bring people knowledge and inspiration for their everyday bike challenges. From winning the world championships to going more often on bike to work; all of us are trying to push our limits... As a youngster I used to train hard (I even become a champion of Slovakia), luckily, I wasn't crazy enough to choose the hardest profession in the world :) These days, you can find me commuting to work on a bike every morning or riding my road bike in Bratislava or Austria (and I am really missing some nice climbs here...).
