François started cycling and skiing with his dad when he was 6-years-old. After 15 years of working as a sales manager for an international group, he moved to Canada for 10 years and was trained as a professional adventure guide in the remote region of Quebec. He then dedicated my time to the sports gear industry in Toronto. His education and knowledge of history and geography coupled with his experience with local cuisine and wine traditions give François the foundation for quintessential French hospitality. His passion for biking and the outdoors offer DuVine guests the most enjoyable experience on tour.
