The 15th of May in 2018 and therefore the start of our journey is getting closer! The preparations are in progress: Detailed route planning, procurement of the equipment, Visa clarifications, the search for sponsors and many more tasks are on the to-do-list.
To get familiar with our touring bicycles, our mutual friend Florian Fischer from Fischer Bike&Party in Ebikon organized two crash courses in January, where we learned about bicycle mechanics and technology.
The experienced mechanic showed us for example what to do with a torn gearshift cable or a broken chain. Besides, he advised us regarding the spare parts and the tools we need for our journey. Together we discussed possible modifications of the bicycles before departure. Most certainly, we will visit Florian Fischer again in his bicycle shop before we leave for Norway to give our rides the final touch.
Many thanks to Flöru already for taking time to support us!
