6 months – 10.000km


Munich Airport

– 3rd of February

– 8th of August – 6 months and 9.974km later

I just can’t stop cycling with 26km to go until the magic 10.000km!

After my happy arrival and my parents were very much relieved, we unpacked my bike in the airport and my Dad and me got ready to cycle home from the airport!

When pumping up my tires at petrol station near the airport (me, not used anymore to pump which work properly) I gave them way to much pressure, so that my backtire totally exploded. Almost as fast as at the formula 1 (unfortunately due to my about 30 flat tires on the trip) I changed the tire and the innertube.

We continued along the river “Isar” coming from the north into Munich.

Unfortunately my bike computer didn’t survive the trip from Quito, so that I had to guess where I would have accomplished the 10.000th km. It was at the first biergarten, at the Chinese tower in the English garden.

How great was that! We celebrated the 10.000km with a good Radler Maß, Brez’n, Obatzda and Weißwurst.

Next stop was Odeonsplatz.

I took a photo with someone who looked with his jacket like a police man on a bike or a road worker in Peru 😉

Of course we had to pass the center of Munich – Marienplatz –  for a picture, before heading finally home to Munich-Pasing.


The trip was officially finished when entering in the garden and parking my bike.

I would like to thank everyone (the list would be too long for my blog) who helped me on trip in all different ways!

I’m also very happy about all your comments and response on my blog.
