2015 – from Heidelberg via Freiburg to Salzburg
Tour for Life 2015
There are many steps to complete the whole Tour. In August 2015 we began with a trip from Heidelberg to Freiburg and from Freiburg to Salzburg. Tour For Life is still in its infancy and is completely organized by me, and before we undertake a more lengthy tour it is important to me to get experience to ensure a smooth operation.
Here you’ll find an overview about the trips in 2015.
Tour for Life 2016 – bis goals, great trips
This year I invite you to participate at the beautiful trip from Berlin via Usedom along the “Ostsee” to Copenhagen. In August there will an Alp-crossing along the via claudia Augusta take place.
In the end of March we already had a nice trip from Freiburg to Colmar (Alace).
Tour for Life through Europe
Even the biggest routes are never ordinary or along the beaten path. For the route through Europe I have tried to find the nicest paths along the Adria river. When we arrive in Istanbul we will have gone through the following areas:
- Germany (Berlin, Dresden, Leipzig, Muenstern, Cologne, Heidelberg, Karlsruhe, Freiburg, Munich)
- Switzerland (Basel, Zurich)
- Austria (Salzburg, Wien, Graz)
- Slovenia (Maribor)
- Croatia (Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik)
- Greece and Bulgaria (Florina, Thessaloniki,…)
Depending on weather and altitude we are planning on traveling between 60 and 80 km per day. The goal is to undertake an exciting bike journey and to enjoy the destinations for a few days as well.

Tour For Life – for a social togetherness
The goal of Tour for Life is to raise awareness of the plight of the afflicted and to be role models in our communities. Through our grassroots activities we show that we are willing to work together toward a better life.
Its your beautiful, wonderful life. Never give up!
I learned that its senseless to constantly be worrying about my illness and to always feel sorry for myself. Grab life by the horns! You will learn that an active lifestyle, contact with foreign cultures and social activism does good and is good for you.
Illnesses that have turned life on its head
Although incredibly important, we want to do more than indirectly encourage donation to charitable organizations. During the Tour For Life I will visit rehabilitation facilities and offer our support to children as well as adults. I want to be role model on how staying positive can spark hope at the darkest of times. Subsequently it´s possible to accompany me for a while.
The Motto – Never give up!
You will find that your optimism can move mountains and things that may have seemed impossible are, in fact, achievable. Take your life into your own hands and live it as you envision. Don’t let your illness dictate your life. Enjoy your life and stride boldly ahead.
Never give up on your goals, your dreams, and, most importantly, yourself.
A matter of the heart
I am convinced that this ride (adventure, rather) makes healing possible. I hope to pass my optimism on to you through “Tour For Life – cycling against cancer”. I want to be an example of how to stay positive and look at things with a different perspective. Everyone is capable of changing their mindset and choosing their life path. It’s all about taking that those first steps, and we can do it together!
4000 km through Europe in 4 Months
You have the opportunity to participate!
The plan for 2015 is to begin our journey in June with a trip from Berlin to Potsdam. In August we will continue the tour with a trip from Heidelberg via Freiburg and Lake Constance to Salzburg. I want to encourage others to join me and positively impact as many people as we can along the way. Click here for detailled information.
Everyday is a chance to take your life into your own hands and pave the way for change!
From Freiburg to Munich or around Lake Constance
In October 2014 the first official Tour “Einmal um den Bodensee“ took place. With a bit of lucky weather it is possible for more tours such as “From Freiburg to Zurich,” for example, to take place.
Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
I am positive that Tour for Life will reignite the fire in your life and restore your enthusiasm.
I look forward to your participation!
