Rider: João Sousa
Two wheels enthusiast since tender age, enjoys riding off road and mountain U-roads, nature freak, loves camping, eating tuna and chorizo at peaceful scenarios after long rides, appreciates contact with local people, the feeling that they want to communicate without knowing you, whatever the language, the struggle on first contact although everyone tries to help you, that really makes your day! While riding alone to the unknown you see a lot of human kindness, even in a remote place you can say that you´re never alone! Human nature really has good karma.
