Jorge Costa

What I Love:

Start the day with a good coffee and power oats. Cycling with the scent of fresh rain in the air. Tackle a long climb. Coffee shop group rides and the “no drop” camaraderie. Maps are like time machines and read history too. Escape to my home town in Cascais, Portugal, and feeling the smell of the ocean. Hang out in an old charm town, dine and talk. Watch pro cycling races and feel the highs and lows of a football match. Make a great classic haircut for my friends. Lindy hop dance and jazz big bands. Celebrate festivities, being a father, and all about family.

In My Previous Life:

I worked at a bicycle workshop and start guiding hiking and cycling vacations in Europe since late '90s. I was a project coordinator for the Portuguese Authority for Youth and Sport, in Lisbon. In 2015, I stopped commuting and moved to Seville, Spain. Here, I established a barbershop, sold it and became, again, a happy guide for Trek Travel.
