My Favorite Ride:

It is the hardest thing to pick one. I would say that riding in the mountains is my favorite thing to do, it could be in the Mallorca, Pyrenees or the Alps. Any climb that gets me a fantastic descent is motivation to pedal hard on the way up, only to start descending again, especially the fast ones!

Handmade bamboo bicycle, Emonda SLR 7, Slash 9.8
