Always on two wheels I have been riding all over. I speak fluently English, Spanish, French, Catalan, and Portuguese. Born and raised in the city of Gaudi (Barcelona), where I obtained an engineering degree and worked as such for 10 years. In 2003 I met my wife while training for our first Ironman Triathlon, a year later we decided to make our hobby our profession and became professional bike guides. Since then I have been biking while sharing my passion for history and local knowledge with the visitors. You will easy recognize me, as I was always the tallest of my class….Trips Guided by Angel Lopez:
