Friday 6. September - 5.00 p.m - Zurich, Switzerland

The next bikepacking ride takes us to the Eurobike 2019 in Friedrichshafen GERMANY and is a very simple thing. There is no need to register, just join, ride and enjoy.

All we provide is:

- a meeting place

- a common start time

- an approx. 90 km route

This is a a "self-supported" event, where you will ride at your own pace and crash down to sleep shorter or longer wherever you like (at your own responsibility and risk).

You can also join at any point of the route you like.

Follow the LIVE TRACKING to see the current location.

Impressions from TALY DIVIDE 2019

NEAPLES - ROME - SIENA - FLORENCE - BOLOGNA - VERONA - LAKE GARDA

It was a 1250 km - self supported - non-stop bikepacking adventure and followed some fast rolling gravel roads but also with quite a few hike-a-bike sections (e.g. the magic forest) and technical MTB trails.

After 5 days and 17h I arrived in the top 20 of the field of roughly 200 participants from 26 nations.

Find below some first impressions, a full race report will follow sometimes next winter, when there is more time ;-)

What is OSPA

OSPA is a unique and nearly indestructible multipurpose-performance bike that requires only One Service Per Annum (1x yearly).
In an experiment that lasted the full year of 2017 (365 days) I rode the OSPA prototype without any mechanical support (except wear parts).

The OSPA bike consists of selected components following the *SLCFE principle and are not be serviced for an entire year according the OSPA mission.

Changed parts during 1st year in operation incl. the yearly service:
- 7 tyres (3 rear / 2 front)
- 3 brake disk (2 front / 1 rear)
- 5 sets of brake pads (3 front / 2 rear)
- 4 shifting cables
- 60 ml transmission oil

2018 - successfully completed 8’000 km in the harshest everyday and race conditions incl. the ITALY DIVIDE.
