For guys who don’t mind or even love ride ride in rain and possibly also snow, Transcimbrica is an excellent option to start the cycling year 2017! For a so called “Schönwetterfahrer” this event might be an even bigger challenge.
The second edition is scheduled and open for registration now.
The race starts at midnight in Hamburg and goes up to the very north of Denmark along the Baltic sea coast line. Back along the west coast. Roughly 1200kms shall be on the meter when back in Hamburg.
A huge difference for the second start is that ALL components and equipment are now tested for several thousands of kms. Last year the bike had a test mileage of some hundreds kms and some uncertainties in components.
One more thing, do not expect Denmark to be a flat land. On the bike you gonna meet hills, surprisingly many.
