The tour started in Istanbul and went through the Balkans, Sofia, Belgrade, Budapest, Brno, Bad Schandau, Pirna back to Finsterwalde. The trip was planned completely alone, but our colleague met another distance cyclist on the way, who eventually accompanied him for a few days.
The biggest challenge on the tour? "Finding a bed in the evening," Gerd Werner tells us as the biggest challenge of his otherwise mostly trouble-free bike trip. "I had no complaints on the way, no sore muscles or sore spots," says the voestalpine Wire Germany employee happily.
