Die Distanz-Fahrt Wien - Berlin 1893

"Der Start in Floridsdorf bei Wien

Die Lorbeeren der Distanzreiter und Distanzgänger ließen die Radfahrer nicht ruhen, auch ihrerseits einmal die 582,5 Kilometer betragende Strecke Wien - Berlin in gegenseitigem Wettbewerb zu durchmessen. Der "Deutsche Radfahrerbund", die "Allgemeine Union" und der "Sächsische Radfahrerbund" vereinten sich und schrieben eine Distanz-Radfahrt Wien-Berlin aus.
Diese nahm am 29. Juni 1893, früh von halb 5 bis 7 Uhr, von der Station Floridsdorf bei Wien ihren Anfang. Von 150 angemeldeten Theilnehmern aus Deutschland und Osterreich=Ungarn waren 117 am Start erschienen und setzten sich in der angegebenen Zeit in Gruppen von je 10 Fahrern mit einem Abstande von 5 Minuten in Bewegung. Als "Favorit" für Deutschland galt als erster Stelle August Lehr aus Frankfurt a. M., der aber schon sehr bald mit seiner Maschine stürzte, wobei diese zertrümmerte, und in Jungbunzlau die Distanzfahrt aufgeben mußte. Unter den österreichischen Theilnehmern gab es keinen ausgesprochenen "Favorit".
Ganz Wien interessirte sich lebhaft für die Sache der Radfahrer, und Tausende waren in der Frühe des 29. Juni zum Start in Floridsdorf hinausgeeilt, um der Abfahrt zuzuschauen."

  • Gran Fondo

    What is a Gran Fondo?
    www.granfondoguide.com/Contents/Index/746/what-is-a-Gran-Fondo

    Gran Fondo's are mass participation cycling events that have enjoyed incredible popularity in Europe for decades and have become popular in North America, Asia, Australia and increasingly, worldwide...

    The first Gran Fondo was the Nove Colli held on July 12, 1970, in Cesenatico, Italy.

    "A Gran Fondo is a type of long-distance road cycling ride originating in Italy in 1970, and roughly translates into English as "Big Ride". Italian Gran Fondos are officially defined and certified by the Italian Cycling Federation as a bicycle event at least 120 kilometres (75 mi) long, and are individually chip-timed (start to finish) races with prizes for the fastest riders in each category. The starts are done en masse, and the format allows for riders of every level to participate, much like a marathon, where most participants are competing against the clock instead of other participants. Traditionally a large meal is served to the participants at the end of the event, and roads are shut down." (Source: Wikipédia)

  • Ultradistance Cycling Aerobar Setup

    by torstenfrank
    13. Juni 2017

    "The following article is written in English for a change. Why? Just because I wrote a good part of the reasoning already inside the english Facebook group for the Transcontinental Race.

    I guess there are two main reasons why one would want to fit aerobars to a normal road bike and therefore most probably a typical drop handlebar. Either to gain speed and coming as close as possible to a time trial bike setup without really owning one. E.g. for participating in time trial events or in triathlons. Or to gain comfort and support for covering extreme distances by providing alternative hand and a sort of „resting“ positions – while at the same time providing a bit of extra speed through aerodynamic advantages.

    Depending on the course (of the time trial event), the length of the route and the experience and training level of the rider both aims and set up characteristics may overlap. But I think it’s save to say that the first group is trying to change their road bike (at least temporarily) to a complete time trial set up and aim to ride their events as close as possible on the aerobar position. This means they also can and really should change their saddle position and their whole position on the bike. Basically, the whole rider rotates forward. This means, they most probably want short head tubes, horizontal or negative rising stems and pads with low stack heights, so they can achieve the sought after deep and aero body position."

    Route - https://worldcyclingtour.org/route/

    We started in Henley, England in September 2010 and arrived in Auckland, New Zealand in March 2012. We made the route up as we went and cycled all the way – no buses or planes, apart from when crossing oceans.


  • There are also the super comfortable approaches. Like taking a boat trip from Amsterdam (NED) to Budapest (HUN) with bicycles on board. Whether borrowed or yours.
