Having fun riding individually and enjoying the plentiful impressions freely on dreamlike routes – that was always our aim. You ride with a well programmed GPS device (Garmin) and experience the maximum of freedom by driving the daily stages at your own pace while a professional guide follows with a service vehicle and your travel luggage, water, first aid kit as well as a satellite telephone and a diverse tool kit and spare parts.
