Where are you?
Rodadas is a website about traveling by bicycle and all sorts of things related to cycling. Rodadas is a personal project of Álvaro Martín and Alicia Urrea (that’s us). Both of us are spanish, write in Spanish and live currently in Madrid, so we guess you could say it’s an spanish website.
Here you can find lots of information (in Spanish) about:
- Tips for cyclist and travellers: checklist of things you shouldn’t forget, things to do for a safe biking day…
- Cycling hardware and camping material: our thoughts on the stuff we carry around, from stoves to sleeping bags
- Diaries and photos from our trip. You will find most of our photos at our Flickr photo page
- Information on the countries we have cycled through so far
When we are on the road this site becomes the platform we use to tell our friends and family where we are and how we are doing.
Who are we?
Álvaro Martín is an IT engineer, bike-and-mountainering-freek and amateur photgrapher. He currently works for Nevintec, an IT company specialized in GIS Technologies (basically maps and stuff like that). He’s also getting a masters degree in Artificial Intelligence and is fluent in some 10 computer programming languages. He can also speak several human languages such as English or German. His first real cycling trip happened when he was 10 years old. He still remembers that day when he did 100 kms. He’s been looking for someone to cycle with him ever since.
You can reach him at: alvaro (at) rodadas (dot) net
Alicia Urrea got a major in Journalism, but after some years working for magazines she decided to give in to the dark side of the Force and became an information architect and project manager for eCliente, a company whose clients are primarily NGOs. She’s also getting a PhD in Development, Social Change and Communication (Sociology). She started cycling only 5 years ago when both Alvaro and her decided to do a Tour around the Netherlands. She speaks English and French and can say “How much does it cost”, “Hello” and “Sorry I step on your foot” in at least 5 or 6 other languages.

La gente siempre se queja de que no se dan las circunstancias adecuadas para hacer esto o lo otro pero yo no me lo creo. Al final los que triunfan en este mundo son aquellos que se levantan y buscan las circunstancias que quieren y, si no las pueden encontrar, las crean.
