Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it. So, what did you miss?
New Zealand Minister is really green
The Green Party’s Julie-Anne Genter, who is minister for women and associate minister for health and transport, was two weeks overdue when it was decided that she would be induced. The pregnant politician opted for a bike ride to get to the Auckland Hospital, for which she was highly praised by her own party.
“Beautiful Sunday morning for a bike ride, to the hospital, for an induction to finally have this baby. This is it, wish us luck!” Julie-Anne Genter wrote on Instagram.
Beautiful Sunday morning for a bike ride, to the hospital, for an induction to finally have this baby. This is it, wish us luck! (My partner and I cycled because there wasn’t enough room in the car for the support crew… but it also put me in the best possible mood!) #42weekspregnant #cycling #bicyclesarethebest
The 42-week pregnant lady said it was “mostly downhill to the hospital”.
Hats off to her!
Parenting. You’re doing it right

Got a little dirty in Glasgow today but a great day with the Dutch national team. Did all I could to help @mathieuvdpoel and @lammertinkm to get in the break resulting in a silver medal for Mathieu 👌🏼 pic.twitter.com/esEZ8EZPZc

It’s growing on him
Funny story from today, my bike has apparently grown a full cm taller since wednesday’s euro champs, passed the Uci check there, failed here and we had to make changes 🤷🏼♂️ nice and consistent as ever.
