My name is Tiago. I´m Portuguese and moved to London almost 3 years ago, after 8 living in Barcelona. I first joined the group to
I came back to cycling about 5 years ago, after a long time away from two pedals (long gone teenager days). After a while on MTB, the London effect definitely kicked in with the road cycling fever and I decided on one after an intensive, exhausting and almost obsessive search for that bicycle that would allow me to stay fit and get rid of all the bad habits in my life (or at least I tried to convince myself about it). So here I am, still not fit, still stubborn (grumpy for some), still planning to become much faster in the future, and always thinking about all the good food and drinks I will be enjoying after a long cycling day.
When I found out about Grupetto, while looking online for cycling clubs to join, I suddenly saw it all coming together. A serious and determined group, with a few rules but not weirdly competitive, with an eye on cycling, and another one in food, drinks and barbecues.
It´s definitely all I need. Don´t even need to mention about how cool the jersey is (and for me the best rule is - cycling with the jersey because the club says it´s the coolest one no doubt). Not to mention the nice reception in the first ride with you guys. So thank you!
I will probably be the last one on the hills, but will always be ready for pit stop and refreshments.
See you soon,
