Nico will give what will be a truly inspiring presentation. Originally from Argentina, he travels the world by bicycle with a special focus on remote regions and its inhabitants. He has cycled over 87,000 kms across four continents and 88 countries.
"Over five years I have pushed myself to the limits. I have reached the most remote corners of this planet and I have spent my life with some of the most extraordinary people I could have met .... I have faced the best but also the worst that humanity has to offer and I have also seen myself face to face with death on a few occasions. I lived the stories I tell and photographed them."
Friends and family are welcome to attend
Note: To cover the fee incurred with Nico's presentation a $5.00 cover charge per person is suggested.
