How Recovering from an Accident lead Vanessa Ruck to the World of Motorcycling, Rallying and Hard Enduro

Vanessa Ruck grew up in England keeping fit in the outdoors doing loads of sports. When she went to University at 18 she got hooked on wakeboarding, snowboarding, mountain biking, anything that got the adrenaline pumping. In 2014 Vanessa’s life took a turn when she was out cycling and was hit by a car. 

The accident changed Vanessa’s life as she realised she would not longer be able to do some of the sports that she loved. She turned to motorbikes initially as a way of getting around and adventuring on the open road. After multiple surgeries she started The Girl On A Bike when she was bed bound to channel her energy into something positive. Vanessa shares all the ups and downs of her recovery. Her goal is to make the most out of each day and help others do the same.

Tune in to find out how Vanessa got on in the Tunisia Desert Challenge extreme rally. The physical and mental recovery process, inspiring others through her journey, going from riding Harleys to Hard Enduro, social media and loads more!

The concept for Rad Season came about when I was trekking around Latin America. I found it difficult to find cool events and festivals going on that were a bit different and had an element of adventure and general radness to them. I knew that there was always something rad worth going to somewhere in the world, but there was no single platform bringing them together for like-minded people. With over 15 years experience in international business development, spanning multiple industries including action sports, events, media, digital, ICT, travel and tourism, I decided to combine them all with Rad Season.
