Christoph Fuhrbach

“Ich liebe Radfahren.

Es ist für mich die ideale Art zu reisen, Menschen zu treffen, zu sehen, wie andere Menschen leben. Perfekt, um die Natur wahrzunehmen und zu genießen. Super, um vom Alltag auszuspannen, um aufzutanken. Um wieder zu mir selbst zu finden. Zudem ökologisch. Gesund.Wichtig sind mir globale Gerechtigkeit und Nachhaltigkeit. Dass wir Menschen Wege finden, gerechter zu leben, Andere nicht auszubeuten, sondern anstreben, dass es allen Menschen auf unserer Erde (und auch den Tieren und Pflanzen) gut geht. Deshalb fahre ich auch ,mit dem Trikot “Leben im Anthropozän, dem neuen, vom Menschen geprägten, Erdzeitalter. Für mich geht es darum, dass wir Menschen weltweit Wege suchen und finden, wie wir nachhaltig und solidarisch miteinander gut und gleichzeitig zukunftsfähig leben können.”

“I love cycling!

For me it is the best way to travel, to meet different people and see how they live. It is a perfect way to spend more time outside in the nature. Great for relaxing from everyday routine and recharging my batteries naturally and to feel my own self. It is also ecological and healthy. Global justice and sustainability are important to me so that we humans find better way to live more justly. Not to exploit others. All people, animals and plants on this earth should strive together and live well. That is the reason I wear a jersey ”Life in the Anthropocene, the new, human-shaped, geological age. For me, it is about people around the world searching and finding ways where we can live sustainably and in solidarity with one another and at the same time be fit for the future.”

See you in Andermatt Christoph!

SBA is not a piece of cake!

Peter and Martin reached Chasseral yesterday, sadly due to the weather conditions they have scratched from SBA.

They struggled with heavy rains, hailstorms, flooded roads, thunderstorms and cold.

SBA is definitely not a piece of cake!

On top of that the weather this year is making the adventure even more challenging!

Who is going to finish this extreme bike adventure this year?

They are off for ITT!

Today at 9:00 Martin and Peter started ITT in Innertkirchen for the 2021 edition of the SBA.

“Our second ‘long distance’ ride highlight this year. Together we accomplished in the last years Audax Brevet 1000+ (2018), the legendary ‘randonneur event’ Paris-Brest-Paris (2019) and in June this year an Audax Brevet 600+.

Now we are at the start line of the next big challenge. We are looking foward to this bikepacking adventure and the numerous cracking climbs.”

“Unser zweites Langdistanz Highlight in diesem Jahr. Gemeinsam sind wir in den letzten Jahren das Audax Brevet 1000+ (2018), den Klassiker Paris-Brest-Paris (2019) und im Juni ein Audax Brevet 600+ gefahren. Jetzt nehmen wir die nächste Herausforderung in Angriff.

Wir freuen uns auf das bikepacking Abenteuer und die unzähligen steilen Anstiege.”

Enjoy the route and have an epic adventure guys!
