Meet The Cycloscope Team

Born in 2014 as a place to tell the stories we collected during our bicycle journey around the world, cycloscope has slowly but steadily become one of the most trusted sources for cycle touring, bikepacking, and general travel and cycling advice.

That’s also thanks to our always-growing team of experts – friends and professionals we’ve met along in these long unforgettable years of nomadism.
