“My name is Francisco but I like people to call me Paquito. I am 54% disabled due to the amputation of my left hand. My favourite sport and the one I practice is cycling.
Thanks to ONCE, which lent us a tándem, we train almost daily. My copilot is blind and I am missing a hand so we make for quite an interesting couple.
But where I really enjoy myself and I feel truly unstoppable is on my mountain bike, going uphill the steepest paths and going down like a flash.
So far I have not become a member of the cycling federation, because I cannot find any mountain bike competition for people with disabilities. Still, I join bike rides and everything I can find. Every occasional fall only makes me get up and keep on with even more determination.
Since I also enjoy making videos and film my experiences here you are one link to pass the time.
Greetings from Paquito and let’s go for it,
