Aurélien Tocquec

I can describe myself as an outdoors person and wilderness lover since childhood.. I was lucky enough to grew up into the Basque country, by the spanish border with the ocean and the Pyrénées close by.

After travelling around and working in South America (Peru, Mexico, Brazil), I feel blessed to live and work in beautiful Corsica, an amazing backyard for my cycling weekend getaways and to go hiking of the beaten track or into the mountains.

I used to travel by bike in some remote parts (New Zealand, Norway, Patagonia…) and planning to do in a few years a long-term bike trip with my wife and our adorable border collie dog.
