Tristan Bogaard & Belén Castelló

The both of us have really found ourselves in cycling together over the past two years. I’ve sat on the saddle for the better part of thirty months before that, started out of curiosity and fell in love with the lifestyle. When Belén joined me this only became better. As of June 2019, we have cycled numerous countries in Europe, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and the Pacific Northwest of America.

This bicycle tour is a personal project that grew from a hobby to 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 answer, 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.
