Eine Weisheit der Indianer besagt, dass man immer wieder stehenbleiben und innehalten muss, wenn man sich in hoher Geschwindigkeit bewegt, damit die Seele nachreisen kann.
Für jemanden der in Österreich lebt, ist es im Grunde nicht sehr naheliegend einen Sport wie Surfen bzw. Wellenreiten auszuüben. Von Österreich braucht es im Schnitt mindestens 700 Kilometer mit dem Auto, um den nächsten halbwegs vernünftigen und konsistenten Surfspot zu erreichen.
Don’t follow this bike – See Atila on his journey around New Zealand using a Carry Freedom Surf Trailer. In this video he explains why and shows the equipment he is using, including the Y surf. Most of his videos are in Spanish, but this one does have sub-titles. But the videos are very entertaining for non-Spanish speakers. Atila is halfway through his 10,000 kilometer journey and still going strong! And he hasn’t broken the trailer yet, despite it falling into the river in one of the last episodes ;>)
The Taipei Cycle Show is a regular trip for us each year. We go to visit our manufacturer in Taichung and then we return to Taipei for the show. Usually there are many friends there and we are able to do some good business. This time was no exception. Bob went alone this year, his pals Debra from Rivet Saddles in Sacramento was recovering from a car accident and Richard from Melbourne was moving warehouse, Daniela stayed at home because someone has to work. Anyway Bob wrote a day-to-day journal about the trip
Everything´s getting faster and faster nowadays. This project was an experiment to slow down living, or rather try to find a way of going slowly and to experience travelling to the fullest. By bike from the southern part of Austria to the mediterranean sea like Liguria and Sardegna was the first part of this adventure. Another very important goal was to catch up with local people, to immerse deeper into the local culture and to find waves in a country which isn´t that famous for surfing.

What a film! This is an exciting and fantastic trip. It’s a film made by our friend Olaf Obsommer. With bike & boat from Cannes to Venice. After last year’s Bike2Boat trip through Norway, Olaf Obsommer, Jens Klatt and Philip Baues decided to step up the game: Between Cannes and Venice they traipsed round the wild waters of Central Europe — and still could have used a sledge than a kayak sometimnes …
The picture you can see here is from the Trans-Ost-Expedition, with Tanya and Denis Katzer. The question we are asking here is…will a Carry Freedom trailer take me there and back? We’ve had many trailers go around the world. Many thousands of kilometers in wild conditions gives us a good idea of what will happen and where problems could appear. The list is long which does not mean that all this will happen on a long trip, we are just exploring all the possibilities.
Our friends Tanja and Denis Katzer are adventurers on a great journey. Starting in Germany, they are traveling to Burma via Mongolia und China on two Riese and Müller bikes which are both equipped with Carry Freedom Y-Frame trailers. Denis pulls a Y-Frame large with a big Zarges box carrying all his electronic equipment and Tanja is pulling a Y-Frame small with an Ortlieb Rack Pack. These are great photos and show a true spirit of adventure and provide another perspective on a world slowly disappearing.

German kayakers Olaf Obsommer, Jens Klatt, and Philip Baues have racked up an impressive list of whitewater expeditions in exotic locations from Chile to Nepal. Then a friend called them out. “That’s pretty cool,” he said. “But what about the environment?” The question inspired the trio to take a more ecological approach, traveling by bicycle to some of the most remote and pristine rivers in Norway.
