The Girl on a Bike in the Media

The Stay Amazing show: Podcast with Vanessa Ruck

As seen in The thestayamazingshow: The Girl On A Bike, Vanessa Ruck, is devoted to experiencing life to the fullest. Vanessa, who calls herself an “adrenaline junkie,” has always been athletic and active. She puts in a lot of labor and hard work.

But it was in March of 2014, that her life changed. She was riding her bike when it collided with a car that ran a red light. At the hospital, she was misdiagnosed with just bruises. When in reality she had injuries to her shoulder and hip that required seven surgeries to reconstruct the damage. Throughout her therapy and recovery, she had the mental attitude and mindfulness to accept her situation in order to move forward with her life.

It was during this time that Vanessa decided that riding motorcycles was something she would like to pursue. She took it one step at a time setting goals and has battled back physically and mentally to continue to live a fulfilling and active lifestyle. Vanessa now races her bike in some of the most demanding and grueling off road courses in the world. In this episode she shares her harrowing experience racing in the Tunisia Desert Challenge.

Vanessa shares her inspirational story of courage and never giving up through her #BecauseICan series in schools and as a keynote speaker, She has the respect of her racing peers and a large social media following. Vanessa’s outlook on life is to make the most of each day and to help others do the same.
