Martin and his dalmatian Sancho are a perfect team. Martin, who started off as a mountain biker, loves every facet of cycling. He doesn’t have a car, choosing instead to run errands with his capable cargo bike. Martin familiarized Sancho with cycling at an early age…Sancho loves accompanying Martin on spirited “full-gas rides” and is everything you could ask for in a trail dog. Both agree that nothing strengthens the bond between human and canine more than adventure.

His fascination for cargo bikes never really diminished, but something seeped away when Jaap got his driver’s license and eventually his first car.
2018 was a thrilling year for Joaquin Cortés. The young Spanish designer traveled to Eurobike with a unique bike in his luggage. It wasn’t just any bike, but his vision of a modern eBike.
