A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER

Biking, the perfekt combination of movement and experience

The combination of experience

On all my travels, I have found that the speed to experience something is very important to me. Hiking would be too slow, driving with the air-conditioned car through the area is much too fast for me. Biking gives you the opportunity to experience so much.
Mountain biking combines countless things that we perceive as a pleasant experience. We are physically active, we measure ourselves against others, we sharpen our senses, we practice our balance. This is the sporting and health side.

There's a lot more that biking can do. Biking can awaken the eye for nature, you smell flower meadows, fresh hay, spruce resin or oriental spices. You broaden your horizons by getting to know and understand local people and their customs. You will gain a deep insight into foreign cultures. The shared experience with like-minded people is of great importance. Friendships develop across national borders and when you meet again, you can tell stories about experienced bike adventures.

All this and much more can be produced by biking. Do you want to be a part of it?
