Nathalie Baillon
Ultra Cycling Adventures


Nathalie is a French long-distance cyclist based in Isère.

After a few years in Munich working as an engineer, she embarks on a bicycle journey in New Zealand, discovering the world of long-distance cycling.

Upon returning to Europe, she purchases a new bike and a pannier, completing her first 1000km ride in less than 60 hours.

The following year, she moves to Isère, resumes her engineering job, and signs up for her first race, the Race Across France covering a distance of 2600km. She was bitten by the cycling bug.

She went on to take part in several international ultra races and was immediately successful, winning several women's races and finishing in the top 10 overall.

She decided to quit her job and become self-employed, pursuing her passion with many new challenges on the horizon.


Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"
