About Luciano

I was born in Argentina, I have been living in Switzerland since 2001, I am married and have two teenage children (18 & 16). I work as a technician in a cinema. My hobbies are repairing and building things (or at least trying to), and playing pinball.

His motivation for 2024

I’ve always wanted to go on a bike touring trip, but I’ve never taken the time to do it. Recently, I became passionate about building a solar-powered bicycle, and I really liked the idea of participating in this adventure. I have no experience in traveling by bike, so I’m very nervous but also excited to make this dream come true. My first goal is simply to participate in the adventure. My second goal would be to reach the finish line within the specified time.
