Cycling as a way to relax
My cycling I didn’t discover cycling until after my active career as a professional ski jumper.
Due to the requirements of a speed sport any endurance training would not have ben beneficial – in fact, it would have been contra-productive.
Now I can cycle as much as I like and I am liking it more with every kilometre.The Alpine-Adria region offers endless opportunities to pursue our passion. Lonely roads with little traffic and sensational landscapes, unending kilometres and ascents of every possible incline and intensity. I can enjoy a cosy coffee tour
just as much as a 7-hour climb. I am also flexible when it comes to weather, as the mountains always have a dry tour to offer and I can ride in pleasant temperatures well into the autumn.
And best of all – I’m never far away from excellent cuisine. Undertaking a trip like this with friends after a few tough days at work is a blessing for body and soul. Regardless of whether I’m training for a specific target or simply want to free my mind and have a nice day.
