Today we’re taking a little journey south to introduce you to a Ruff Rider who is used to push his limits, both in his everyday life and on his Lil’Buddy: Julien Roulet! He is a great sportsman, teacher and also a member of the French Paralympic snowboarding team. In 2018, he even took part in the Winter Olympics in Pyongyang.
Julien is also a great kitesurfer. He’s using his Lil’Buddy every day to drive to school where he teaches and to explore the French Riviera to find the best kite spots.
A profile to discover in our Ruff Riders series, have fun reading!
I live in Marseilles but I am originally from Corsica. I’m 23 years old and I am teaching at primary school. When it comes to sports I practice kitesurfing, mountain biking and snowboarding. I was lucky enough to participate in the Pyeongchang Paralympic Games in South Korea in 2018.
I know Ruff Cycles from Instagram and of course I am following you on all social media channels!
I was looking for a high quality, well equipped bike with lights and a stylish look. Especially the possibility to ride it in pairs was very important to me. The Lil’Buddy meets all these criteria and is therefore the perfect bike for me!
What I really admire is the very good braking and the power that makes you forget its weight. Also the fact that we can share moments together. That’s why I only added the footrests for passengers.
I use the Lil’Buddy in different conditions, in 50% of the cases there are two of us. I use the bike in good weather, but also in heavy rain and mud. I ride off-road a lot. My longest ride alone is about 50 kilometers with a lot of altitude gain and once there were two of us 38 km along the coast.
What are you waiting for? Buy the coolest bike, it will take you far and you often won’t need a car which is good for the environment!
