Over the last 20 years, cycling has became an important part of Ricardo’s life. While he’s always been connected to electrical and mechanical maintenance, Ricardo’s need of the outdoors and desire to know new people and places has only grown—indeed, cycling has led Ricardo to meet some of his best friends. Knowing Portugal by bike is one of the most incredible experiences anyone can feel, and Ricardo is proud to share it with everyone.
