Our boss, a born dreamer, Pierpaolo founded Girolibero/Zeppelin in 1998. His travel diaries cover over 500,000 km of hitchhiking adventures the length and breadth of Europe and the most unusual collection of bikes. Favourite mode of travel? – Bike and boat. His CV lists some unlikely occupations, after which he irreversibly converted to cycling holidays. When not at the company's HQ in Vicenza, he's most likely out at lunch with one of his staff – something he enjoys doing with each of them in turn.
