Orinda, California, real estate investor and entrepreneur Juan Mancheno is a conservationist, outdoorsman, and devotee of the martial arts. Orinda, located just east of Oakland, California, and the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, sits amidst some of the most beautiful and accessible protected land in the United States. Nestled between Briones, Wildcat Canyon, and Redwood Regional Parks, Orinda offers Juan Mancheno plenty of opportunities to pursue his interests in cycling, hiking, and mountaineering. A long-time member of the Sierra Club, Juan Mancheno takes pride in the fact that, with the exception of Antarctica, he has visited every continent in search of wilderness and outdoor adventure off the beaten path. In Japan, Juan Mancheno took on the mountaineering challenge of Mt. Fuji. He has also hiked Mt. Kilimanjaro in Kenya, as well as Lombok’s Mt. Rinjani. Kilimanjaro boasts the distinction of being the world’s tallest freestanding mountain, and while it is the highest peak in Africa, it requires no technical climbing expertise. The demanding hike to the summit takes several days. Kilimanjaro is also one of the only equatorial peaks maintaining a year-round snowcap. More recently, Juan Mancheno cycled a 75-mile circuit of Lake Tahoe. When not working, cycling, or traveling, Juan Mancheno can often be found either on the racquetball courts at Lakeridge Athletic Club or weight training at Renaissance ClubSport in Walnut Creek, California. He also maintains membership in Graciefighter Jiu-Jitsu, a martial arts organization offering training and competitions in mixed martial arts, boxing, and kickboxing, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Juan Mancheno has focused on Muay Thai kickboxing and mixed martial arts. He enjoys cooking Italian and Greek food and relaxes with an occasional escape into the world of literary science fiction or a book on the newest developments in green technology.
