Trek Travel Role:

Guide

My Passion:

Sports, music, dancing, travel, freedom, suitcases and gear. Oh, and guiding bike trips!

My Favorite Ride:

I remember waking up one morning in provence and packing up French cheese with my friend Cristian from Spain. We were about to climb Mount Ventoux, a torturous climb of 13 miles averaging 9% grade and a total of 5331 feet elevation gain. Well, as you probably guessed already, I had some burning muscle sensations just about everywhere. After 2:16 I made it and celebrated with French cheese and whatever I could find to eat. The view was an absolutely stunning 360 degrees panorama of mountains, valleys and rivers. And now for the best part, the 13 mile descent back. We got our money back all-right and with a huge smile on our faces returned to brag about it!

In My Previous Life:
