Here is what Richard says:

I’m a lawyer that one day decided to leave everything and put all my energy and effort on what I really liked: the bicycle.I developed a passionated interest in “the two wheels”. And I developed that passion as a physical challenge and as a discover of landscapes and spots.That is what I want to suggest here, taking advantage of the physical challenge to discover different environments, visiting places, admiring landscapes. Riding a bicycle will be no longer only pedalling up to the finish.
