Ralph Bärtle

Volcano Bike Founder

Starting out as a surf and sailing instructor, Ralph began building the first bike station in the south of Fuerteventura in 1994. Since that time he has worked meticulously to establish the sport of cycling on the Canary Island of the Sun. For more than 20 years he was able to develop and consolidate Volcano Bike as the leading supplier in the bike sport on Fuerteventura. 

On 02. December 2014 Ralph died of the consequences of a serious illness. Nevertheless, his strength, his ideas and his spirit will always remain part of Volcano Bike and the whole sport of biking in the Canary Islands. Rest in peace, Ralph!
