“Monika Sattler ist anders – ganz anders als die meisten Radsportler und Radsportlerinnen und auch in ihrem Lebenswandel scheint sie einzigartig. RAD-Monika hat Großes vor: „The Vuelta-Ride“. Die 32-Jährige steckt mitten in den Vorbereitungen: Vom 25.August bis zum 16.September 2018 möchte sie die 21 Etappen der „Vuelta a España“ in Angriff nehmen und dies jeweils nur wenige Stunden vor den besten Radsportprofis der Welt.

Lessons in Badassery, British blog, 2018
“German-born Monika Sattler (aka RAD Monika) is on a mission to inspire more people, especially women, to take up cycling. Her plan: to be the first woman in history to ride the entire course of this summer’s professional road cycling race, the Vuelta a España – one of cycling’s toughest Grand Tours – just hours ahead of the pro cyclists. The brutal 3300km route is designed to test even the most seasoned of professional riders and includes 21 days on the bike, notoriously difficult climbs and the searing heat of a Spanish summer. Phew!…”

As part of my effort to spread my mission to inspire others to challenge themselves, the Mallorcan television station, IB3, created a short film about my 1100km ride from Mallorca to Munich as well as the 3300km Vuelta Ride where I will go for the record as the first female riding every kilometer of the Vuelta a Espana hours before the professionals.

I had the opportunity to support a school class in their first 100km challenge while acting as a role model to show that whatever challenge you set, you can achieve it.

Why riding the Vuelta a España?
Only until yesterday I realized that I will be the first woman in history riding every kilometer of the Vuelta a España at the same day as the professionals.
Although it will be awesome setting a new record the initial reason is to empower others to go outside their comfort zone and dare to try new things.
I am very grateful to receive this one-page coverage in the Ultima Hora reaching more people with this mission.

Finding the job in life that you are most passionate about is not very easy. It took me a long time and many tries.
I never found it.
So I created it.
Thanks to Mallorca Zeitung to talk about my life journey from studying nuclear weapons to inspiring others to ride bikes.
