Tristan Bogaard & Belén Castelló
Tristan Bogaard and Belén Castelló are photographers and avid travelers. For the past three years, they've done several bicycle tours around Europe, North America and Asia, capturing the landscapes they've come across and reflecting back on memories by curating their photos and videos on social media. Their love of photography and adventure has also led them to create a coffee table book called BIKE LIFE featuring their stories and anecdotes as well as sharing recommended routes and interesting tips on how to plan your own bicycle tour.
For them, traveling on a bicycle has become a personal project that grew from a hobby into something much bigger. “For the longest time we've asked ourselves the notorious question that we’re all thinking of; what do I really want to do with my time – what kind of difference do I want to make in the world? For us, cycling is the key, as it answers some of the biggest concerns of our society and environment. It does not pollute. It motivates people’s kindness and trust. It shows an alternative to the normality of consuming and living in general — not mentioning the major physical and mental health benefits.
We enjoy working with people that believe in the same things that we strive for, and feel fortunate to be amongst ORTLIEB’s team of inspiring folks."
