Jean - Vida BikeAbout us

My name is Jean and I am a bike fan. I am French and have been living in Barcelona for 12 years. I really enjoy Catalonia, a wonderful region with great diversity of landscapes, from the Costa Brava to Pyrenees. I like wild nature, mountains and cycling, a great way of visiting a region, its people and culture.

Always passionate about cycling, I discovered the recumbent bike 4 years ago, an amazing bike designed to have fun and tremendous experiences!

I liked it so much that I decided to organize recumbent bike tours in Catalonia, without previous experience in tourism. I previously worked as a software engineer, in companies such as Telefónica or Intel, and others in France and Spain. Thanks to trainings and specific courses about creating a company an Ecotourism, I launched my company Vida Bike (ex Camina la Vida).

Cycling is also a pretext to have a gastronomical insight to a region, its dishes and wines.

I love cycling, and even more recumbent cycling. I also like hiking, mountains and nature which makes me feel free, I enjoy tasting typical dishes and local wines. Other hobbies: yoga, biodanza, theatre, chi‐kung… These activities make me feel alive and happy.
