“The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
The last two years have not been easy. We have been living with a lot of limitations and restrictions. Things that we took for granted were all of a sudden not a given anymore due to quarantines and lockdowns.
With the normal life starting to return, I will celebrate with my 2022 cycling project “Gravel Transalp” to experience exactly what many of us have missing so much in recent years:
Adventure, Nature, Freedom, Exploration.
And all that on my favorite mode of transportation: The Gravel Bike.
I will be setting off from the Austrian Reschenpass and ride 300km way over six days through to Garda Lake, with every moment documented by the professional expedition photographer Gavin Kaps.
Follow my adventure!
