Why Patagonia-Biking?

As a kid, I realized that Patagonia generated much attraction in me and it was an invitation to dream about magnificent places and adventures. I lived far more than 1600 kms and for a boy of few resources, Patagonia was distant and unattainable. With only 17 years I got to do my first bike ride (solo and with panniers) to the Lanin National Park. From that trip, I discovered the treasure that my bike could transform into, with which I could reach places that seemed attainable only in my imagination. Since the late 80s, until 1995, I was forged as a cyclist, “no Internet” and in a field that was still wild.

Ushuaia; “The city at the end of the world” it stopped being an impossible target and on several occasions, making laps to Argentina or leaving for Alaska, it was a key milestone for the start of a trip or the end of the great journey

We call ourselves Patagonia-Biking, not only because Patagonia is an amazing place and that every traveler should visit. But also because Patagonia inspires you to dream and keep traveling. In Patagonia I started, I was shaped and made. From there I began to travel and see the world. Ever since, through “Patagonia-Biking” I can share with all those who want to live their lives on their bikes, fantastic places and see the world!
