Cycling since childhood

I’ve been cycling since childhood. I discovered cycling, when I was big enough to climb on my Father’s sports bike and realized that by bike I can go further and see more. I started seriously training only about ten years ago when I started triathlon.

Biking is everyday

For several years now, the bicycle has been my favorite daily means of transport. I can’t imagine a more convenient way to move around the city. My passion for cycling allowed me to work for several years in a bike shop, where I helped other cyclists to fulfil their dreams with advice and knowledge. While working at the bike shop, I also learned how to adjust the bike’s seat and continue to help cyclists find a more comfortable position on their bike so they can make their rides longer and more enjoyable.

Enjoying the cycling process

Most of cyclists and me too enjoy long and challenging rides, especially I like to experience mountainous terrain, where you can ride un the hill for hours to see the THAT view and then enjoy a quick ride down. However, it is not important for me to be the first or the fastest, I enjoy the process and I am happy to help a fellow traveler with moral, physical or technical support.

 

What Aigars says about him:

Artis is a remarkably interesting conversation partner as he has so many skills and interests that starting a chat with him could last for hours. For him it is not important to be the first or the fastest, he enjoys the process and is happy to help a fellow traveler with moral, physical, or technical support. And his latest very serious hobby is cooking! He is also now our chef when traveling.
