Cyclists have to be studied. I like to call it Cycology. Why would someone wake up in a cold dark morning, or head outside and ride in the pouring rain for hours and hours? It doesn’t make any sense! It’s craziness!
Hi my name is Alex Regino, I'm a certified ride leader/marshal by the Florida Bicycle Association, and I'm the founder of The Ride Xperience - a bike rental and tour business in Orlando, Fl. I first fell in love with cycling when living at a boarding school in Massachusetts at the age of 15. Spring was just around the corner and the only way I could explore the beautiful coast of Beverly was on a bike. Cycling gave me freedom and the feeling that there were no limits to what and where I could explore.
Well, life got in the way. I found a job, got married, had kids, and my bike was sadly forgotten. Although, one day I was in a deep sleep and had a dream; I was riding a bike up and down the hills, feeling the breeze on my face. It felt so real! I woke up and said to my wife, “I’m going to start riding bicycles”. And ever since that dream, I never stopped cycling. Actually, I don’t know even if sometimes I’m still in the dream.
Now living in one of the most visited cities in the world, my mission is to show that there is much more in Orlando than just huge conventions centers and theme parks. At the end of the ride, there is nothing more satisfying to me than to hear from my guests that our cycling experience was the best part of their trip to Orlando. Sorry Mickey ; )
