During his childhood, João Gomes Sanches used the bicycle as a means of transport to get to school and had the habit of following events dedicated to this sport, such as the “Volta ao Algarve”. However, this was never a great passion of his. It was then, during the countless trips he made for work, that he began to collect hundreds of miniature bicycles, and at this point, it is difficult to find parts that he does not own.

With a stunning view over the Atlantic Ocean, this exhibition will take place at the 5-star hotel of the Hoti Hoteis Meliá Madeira Mare Group, located ten minutes from the city centre of Funchal and the tourist area. It will have the support of the Regional Secretariat of Tourism and Culture of the Autonomous Region of Madeira, MADCycle, FreeRide, Decathlon and the Madeira Cycling Association.
