So you're sitting on the couch right now with a bag of chips and some bon bons?  Well, if you are lucky enough to live where there is SNOW you might have a hard time getting geared up to do much of anything.  It snowed all day today making the landscape amazingly beautiful, but making it hard to get a little motivated to move.  I walked out to attempt to ride my bike trainer - took one look at it, turned around and shut the door in disgust.  How many more times do I have to sit my butt on that seat and pedal to nowhereland?  I'm struggling with the fact that I can't go outside and ride my bike right now.  Bike rollers just don't look sexy anymore.  They make me want to shout and scream obscenities.  So, what can we do to get a little motivated? 

You already know that the first step in motivating yourself is having something to work for. It doesn't matter whether that's a weight loss goal or a goal to ride your bike in a century -- anything that gives you reason to exercise will work. Always having something to work for, big or small, it's just one way to keep yourself going.  So, get off the couch, put down those bon bons, and write down what your summer goals are.  Let's shoot for the stars.  Who knows, maybe we'll land on the moon! 

We will talk more about
  • Preparation 
  • Discipline
  • Flexibility
  • Commitment
  • Having Fun
  • Reward Yourself

Welcome to a new attitude in women's cycling and a first in women's specific titanium and steel custom bikes. We know females....because we are females. All women share a common interest. We want to feel comfortable, confident, and strong on our bikes. We also want to look good while riding hard. At Bellarosa we build bikes to fit you using only the finest materials. Our bikes our built in house one at a time from start to finish. 100% handbuilt in the U.S.A. So guess what? We no longer have to ride boy bikes. It's alright to want to ride a bike designed specifically for you. At Bellarosa we can build your dreams.
