Bikepacker TOUR - SChweiz

Vom Freitagabend 22. März bis Sonntag 24. März 2019 tourt die Bikepacker Community Schweiz und Interessierte mit Bike, Sack und Pack durch die Schweiz.

Die Weekend-Tour ist vorm Format her, eine Mischung aus Bikepacking-Tour und Etappen-Rennen. Im Zentrum steht das Abenteuer und der Spass.

Es gibt jeweils einen gemeinsamen Start und ein Zielort. Dies ermöglicht den Austausch unter den Teilnehmenden und ist die perfekte Gelegenheit Material und deine Form zu testen. Das Ganze natürlich “self-supported”.

Teilnehmen dürfen alle Bikepacker, die sich eine oder mehrere der Etappen zutrauen und über die entsprechende Ausrüstung verfügen.

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.

2017 - successfully completed 10’000 km in the harshest conditions. The only spare part changed was a shifting cable.

2018 - no service at all so far (status mid December 2018

*Simple, Lean, Consistant, Fast, Economic
