THE LIFESTYLE WAY OF CYCLING
Linda and Dirk are not top athletes or record holders. They are simply enthusiastic cyclists from Belgium. For 10 years now, the two of them have been travelling on different routes within Europe. The two were inspired on a trip to Portugal, at that time without a bike. There they made the acquaintance of an elderly couple who told them about their annual cycling trips.
The spark was ignited! Enthusiastically, the two decide to get on their own bikes. They planned their first major tour in the Algarve. A two-week tour of 400 km. This is followed by trips through Spain, France and Italy – with more and more kilometres.
Soon they realise that travelling by bike offers them almost unlimited possibilities to discover the world: You travel in an environmentally friendly way, you can control your own speed, you are independent and free. When it comes to choosing materials, Linda and Dirk rely on two touring bikes from Santos, the touring bike specialist.
One of their last tours takes them to Ireland in April. A country that is known for fantastic landscapes, friendly people, nice pubs with live music, but also for a lot of rain…
