Antonio Miranda is from Modesto, California. He says “Cycling has been my main mode of transportation until from about 2008-2020 when I submerged myself into adventure cycling culture. I toured From Virginia to the edge of Ohio and multiple remote parts of Puerto Rico and Northern California. Bikepacking has played a huge role in my development as a cyclist.⁠

I want to change the faces in adventure cycling and encourage more POC to join the outdoor adventure community and embrace those spaces. I want others to join me and help them realize they can do this as well without the fear of physical harm or death that shadows our community. I want to continue to strengthen the bonds of local outreach and build a larger community of adventure cycling that becomes more accessible and encourages personal growth.”⁠
