Luis’s enthusiasm for cycling began when he was 12 years old when his father bought him his first ever Bike Magazine. Since then Luis has pursued racing mountain bikes and rides on a daily basis. Prior to joining Duvine, Luis worked as a guide for local Portuguese bike tour companies since 2015. He’s a lover of the south of Portugal, especially Alentejo and the Algarve, where he spent more than half of his youth visiting his grandparents. His love for the people, food, and landscape in southern Portugal has always gotten to his heart and is now stronger than ever.
