Embarking on a year-long cycling odyssey in South America in 2004 marked the genesis of Sébastien’s love affair with cycling. Since that pivotal year, cycling has become a part of his daily life. Whether it’s commuting, guiding bike tours, consulting in the realm of IT for bike tour operators, immersing himself in a gravel bike club, or crafting vacations around two wheels, cycling is not just a pastime—it’s a way of life. Since 2008, he has reveled in the opportunity to lead bike tours, sharing the joy of cycling across the globe.
Beyond the pedals, Sébastien’s second passion unfolds in the world of wine and gastronomy. As the president of a local wine club, he orchestrates a delightful wine festival in his town. He also channels his culinary zeal as a dedicated cook. Rooted in the influence of his mother and his town, Sébastien’s cooking is inspired by the bountiful array of fresh ingredients found in local French gardens.
