The first time Gürcan rode a bike was at just two years old. Since then, he’s taken every opportunity to ride. At the age of 12, Gürcan had a calling to be a cycling guide and ended up pursuing this passion after graduating from university. Gürcan led cycling tours for 15 years in Switzerland and Germany before joining DuVine in 2021. It’s his mission to use his cycling skills and extensive experience in tourism to offer guests exceptional support while on tour.
