Having grown up in the mountains, I had the best conditions to appreciate nature and love. Early on, I took the mountain bike to discover foreign countries, cultures, languages and country-specific dishes. With the takeover of the bikade of my father I was able to make my hobby a profession. It always makes me happy and satisfied to show our guests our wonderful home.
My favourite quotation: „It was a good day when you learned something and made someone laugh.“

Born in the Netherlands Edwin grew up naturally cycling. As a kid he raced with a self-made starting number through the suburbs on his BMX-bike. To improve his speed skating training he started to use a racing bicycle. In his student years Edwin got bored by his racing bike and started to explore the mountains on his bike. After 15 years of working in industry, love made him relocate to lovely Gastein. Since 2014 he runs together with Andrea Bike-Gastein.
