Meet the Team
|Ian Holt - Director|
I started racing back in 1991 and have been hooked on cycling ever since. From an early age I raced across the UK and abroad always striving to do better and win races. I rode mountain bikes, road and track – regularly crossing over the disciplines. The camaraderie you build with your fellow competitors and team mates when suffering on the bike together is something quite unique. My racing took me to a team in Tuscany where I picked up a new language and culture and I now consider Italy to be my second home.
I've always been passionate about cycling and it's easy to be passionate about Italy with such great food, wine, landscapes and people. I started to run cycling trips for friends and from there La Fuga was born. My passion quickly spread to France and across Europe as I uncovered all the many amazing places to ride.
Sharing the knowledge and experience of all the great places with our guests is the most rewarding aspect of La Fuga and what drives us to keep searching for the road less travelled.
|Aga Spica - European Tour Manager
Aga is a force to be reckoned with. She has been racing for a number of years in Poland both on Mountain bikes and in Road races. She has recently spent a year in Fuerteventura as a tour guide before realising that battling with the wind was better left to the triathletes. She joins us as a seasonal tour guide in La Fuga this year based in Italy.
|Oscar Miranda - European Tour Manager
Oscar started riding for a simple reason: he'd always wanted to move faster than walking and have some fun while he was at it! During a trip to the Canary Islands, he had his first chance to work with fellow cyclists and found that sharing these experiences sparked his enthusiasm for guiding bike tours. He will be on the hand during the week to help out with anything and everything you might need!
|Therese Rush – Bookkeeping
I was born in Sweden and settled in the UK over 20 years ago working in the IT and Market research industries as an accountancy professional. I joined La Fuga in March 2016 as their bookkeeper.
Coming from Sweden I love the great outdoors and have spent many a happy day on the mountains on a pair of skis. Mountain biking with the family is also a favourite. As a long time suffering road cycling widow my husband would love to buy me a road bike, so watch this space!
