A bit of history: The Juliana name comes from Juli ‘Queen of the Dirt’ Furtado. When knee injuries dashed her hopes of skiing success, Juli, a world class athlete, took up cycling and won the US National Road Championship. Soon thereafter, she went on to achieve serious success mountain biking, racking up more first-place finishes than any other pro mountain biker, male or female. Juliana’s are built around suspension that is tuned for a lighter rider with build kits that have been approved by women. Rage is happy to have Juliana bikes. Get full details at julianabicycles.com

Rachel Carson wrote ‘those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts’. My bike takes me away from all the noise and havoc of daily life. I always come back from a ride happier, less stressed and more energetic.”
