Age is just a Number for Steadfast Athlete Gurleen Kaur, Winner of Several MTB Medals

Steadfast Athlete Gurleen Kaur is no stranger to awards. The fitness enthusiast and a mountain bike (MTB) lover, Gurleen has participated and won podiums in several cycling competitions, including the MTB Shimla, MTB Arunachal, THAAR, MTB Dehradun, Gran Fondos, UP Government's Challenge 250, Aravalli Trailhunters races, Lakshya - The Endurance Testing Rides, Raftaar races, and the Mad Over Biking (MOB) races. She is the first female from Delhi NCR and the second in the country to have completed the Super Randdoneur on an MTB- randonneuring is an endurance sport where riders attempt bicycle rides of 200 km or more called brevets.

Gurleen has also completed two Tour De Golden Triangle rides, covering 750 km in three days- the golden triangle is a circuit connecting New Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur.

The mother of two children has been into fitness since her young days when she was still in school and won a second dan black belt in karate. Gurleen has done long-distance riding and mountain biking, participating in races such as the MTB Shimla, ATH Races, and MTB Arunachal, considered the toughest mountain bike races in the world. The 50-year-old has clearly defined that age is just a number and that it’s never too late to start doing what you love. She has a huge fan base among all female runners and cyclists across Delhi NCR and is a fitness idol for many.

Lakshya Randdonuers was a turning point in Gurleen’s life. She started the initiative with her cycling buddy Kamal Bisht to break fear of long-distance riding. Lakshya- The Endurance Testing ride is similar to brevets organised by Audax India, but it is a more supported version and helps riders prepare themselves for the brevet rides.

Gurleen has been using steadfast products since 2020 and loves Steadfast Nutrition’s protein supplement Power Protein, stating that it is the “best recovery product” she has ever come across. She is also a fan of the energy supplements Snergy and Carborance.

“Though I have been relying on quite a few Steadfast Nutrition products over the years, Power Protein is my favourite as this is the best recovery product I have come across. I have used it for the last four years after an intensive run or cycling activity. Besides the obvious benefits- taking care of muscle fatigue, wear and tear, and repair, the add-ons are the great taste and ease-of-use,” says Gurleen.

Gurleen Kaur has broken all mental barriers for long-distance cycling by doing super-long rides on her mountain bike. It is difficult for people to do these distances on a road bike- she has completed them on MTB. 

Gurleen says Steadfast Nutrition has motivated her to outperform herself. She is delighted to be a part of the Steadfast family.

“Being a Steadfast athlete has given me immense motivation to push my limits even more. To get support as a female rider from such a big brand feels just amazing. The products have affected my endurance in a positive way, and it is a delight to be a part of Steadfast family”

We at Steadfast are proud to be associated with her and wish the best of luck for her upcoming events and races.
