About me

WHO AM I?

Bernarda Jurič (in official documents Bernardka), born 1973 in Ptuj. I have a university degree in civil engineering and a master in technical environmental security. In the company Projekt d.d. Nova Gorica I am head of the company subsidiary in Ljubljana and I am responsible for complex construction projects during the phase of preparation as well as the implementation phase, where beside the technical knowledge from the construction field and 20 years of experience, I have excellent knowledge in environmental law and different administration procedures. You can read more about my professional qualifications in my CV, enclosed in my biography.

My spear time, whatever is left of it, I spend on my bicycle and skis – depending on the time of the year.

Book

12 000 kilometrov greha

About the book

In the book »12 000 kilometres of sin« I describe my way from Perth to Sydney and from Cape York to Wilson Prom. On an indirect path, I describe without any embellishments how I followed my wish, about my preparations, about the cycling, the pain, the encounters with animals and people, about Australian routes and also about themes that caught my attention from the perspective of civil engineering: about supply habitats, the plumbing, bitumen and much more. These are some chapters from the book: Double drudgery; The line is falling in pieces; Scabs on my ass; In resveratrol veritas; Civil engineer on the bike; Disc pads and snoring for Guinness; The moment before SOS; The escape from Faradays cage...

About me

Bernarda Jurič (1973)
Diplomirala je iz gradbeništva in magistrirala iz tehniškega varstva okolja. Od leta 2004 je vodja zahtevnih projektov in ljubljanske izpostave podjetja Projekt d. d. iz Nove Gorice. Privrženost etičnemu odnosu do okolja strastno in čustveno prenaša na svoje športne in rekreativne dejavnosti. Posveča se vztrajnostnemu kolesarjenju, v katerem je ena najboljših na svetu, smučarskemu teku, trekingu, turnemu smučanju...

Je avanturistka. Na tekaških smučeh je na 900 kilometrov dolgem teku prečila Finsko in na cilju skočila v ledeni Atlantik. V Avstraliji je leta 2018 v dveh mesecih zarisala dve kolesarski sledi: v 27 dneh 5.500 kilometrov dolgo vodoravno in v 34 dneh 6.200 kilometrov dolgo navpično. Povezala je štiri skrajne točke tega kontinenta. Letos septembra je zaključila eno najtežjih MTB-bikepackig dirk Race to the Rock v Avstraliji, na kateri je z zlomljenim rebrom v ekstremno težkih razmerah prevozila 2.696 kilometrov.
