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.
