Well, time is ticking and the start of the Grenzsteintrophy (GST) is nearing. Yesterday I picked up Paul Errington from the airport in Frankfurt; who will be doing the GST also. He flew in from the UK, Newcastle to be exact. A super nice guy, we meet on the bikepacking forum. Maybe a new prospect for BWR?? 🙂
On tuesday the 14th of June I flew in from the states after visiting family and friends for two weeks. I didn’t bring my bike, I just did some running to keep the motor warm. I hope it was enough.
So we’re off today to drive up to the Baltic coast to the town of Lübeck, Travemünde. On the 17th the “race” starts. I say race tentativley because it’s not like other self-supported events; it’s what the participants want it to be. We, Paul and I, are taking it as a race. To try and get to the Czech border ASAP. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll post from time to time some tidbits of the race. You can also “watch” me here: http://www.grenzsteintrophy.de/ Click on my name on the right of the page and you’ll be able to see where I’m at.
Have fun watching!
