” I spent an average of more than 5 hours in the saddle wearing the UNIQUE bib shorts.
From 35 degrees under the burning sun to 15 degrees on top of a mountain pass, there was no compromise in comfort and no saddle pain.
I’ve been riding every day. I’ve been trying real hard to test the limits of the UNIQUE. I did not want to miss any of those beautiful roads or those magnificent views.
That’s exactly what it means to me to own my ride. It’s to always want more: to be able to perform more and to ride more.
Pursuing my passion has never been more comfortable.”

“Cycling for me means more than just going out to do some exercise.
It’s about challenging myself: getting to know myself better as I am pushing up mountains and overcoming my inner demons.
It’s about having fun and laughing with friends when going for a ride, or stopping to enjoy the views, taking a photo and being awed by the beauty of nature. It’s about breathing and finally relaxing my mind.
When I come home after a ride I always feel happy – and I’m already looking forward to the next one.
It’s addictive and I’m more than grateful that cycling is a big part of my life.
That’s what #ownyourride means to me. Riding my bike means being free!”

“For me cycling means enjoying the solitude! I made all the important decisions of my life while I was on my saddle; including deciding to immigrate to Italy!
#OwnTheRide is a concept of being alone with only your bicycle as a companion; waiting for the rain to stop, stopping for an amazing photo just after the steepest hairpin of the road or having a strong coffee after a long ride. ‘No matter what I’m actually doing, I’m happy whenever I ride alone!’ ”

“I stopped to think why I like cycling so much, I like fatigue (meaning the effort and the struggle you feel when riding), I like being in nature, I like the freedom.”

“#OwnYourRide to me means to find a feeling of fluidity in which physical and mental fatigue lead to well-being by transcending pain.
Another way to put it is that I want to have control over my body, my bike and what I’m doing.”
