Whether they're recreational riders or hard-core racers, these are 12 ostomates who love outdoor cycling.

1. Why should you get out and ride? Because it's an honor to be alive.

2. To get fast, you have to go where the fast guys are.

10. Leave stresses behind and spend more time in nature.

Blue sky, dry trails. What more could you ask for? Ohh well I surprised myself with a KOM (pr) on one of my uphill segments. Weird but I guess there is something hiding behind all these bad feelings lately. #mtb❤️ #dayslikethis #trails #stravaproveit #strava #garmin #garminfitness #fenix5 #cyclinglife #cyclist #cycling #instabike #cyclingphotos #outdoors #outsideisfree #playground #crohnsfitness #crohnsdisease #crohns #stomi #ostomymtb #ostomyfitness #ostomy #stomi #cykla #thisismygym #älskanaturen #actcyclingteam #maxprestationsportsclub #långloppscupen

12. Rule #1: Always ride with a helmet.

Had a nice ride this morning! Got a new helmet this week! Only the second time I have worn it so far so good! Hoping to not test it's effectiveness. #cycling #triathlete #ironmantraining #morningride #swimbikerun #smithovertake #smithoptics #happy #healthy #stylin #fitness​ #nocolonstillrollin
