Tour For Life – cycling against cancer

Bike riding for a healthier life

Together Through Europe

 Going the distace for a good cause! Be there!

We ride together for a good cause and to experience a new beginning!

With Tour For Life you can be a part of a group bike excursion from Berlin to Istanbul. Be a part of a group that travels the world while supporting a social awareness project, especially when you are suffering from cancer, multiple sclerosis, or other seriously illnesses that have affected your life. Reignite your optimism to beat anything! And even if you would only like simply join us on our bike ride you would be most welcome!

We strive for social awareness, and everyone’s invited!

We ride for a better and healthier life. Tour For Life – Cycling against cancer is for you, you me, and everyone.
Through our unique bike tour directly through Europe we are striving to increase awareness and show our fellow man that wonderful things can be achieved even after a serious diagnosis.

2015 – through Germany, Switzerland, and Austria

We are collecting donations for the charity: Stiftung Leben mit Krebs, das Nationale Centrum für Tumorerkrankungen und die Hirntumorhilfe e.V

Tour For Life 2015

There are many steps to complete the Tour 2015. We begin with a 2000+ Kilometer tour through Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. 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.

Tour For Life through Europe

Even the biggest routes are never ordinary or along the beaten path. For the route from Berlin to Istanbul 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)
  • Montenegro
  • Albania (Tirana)
  • Greece und 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

Help locally

Although incredibly important, we want to do more than indirectly encourage donation to charitable organizations. During the Tour For Life we will visit local hospitals and offer our support to children as well as adults. We want to be role models on how staying positive can spark hope at the darkest of times. Various activities will be organized such as day trips or painting sessions to encourage interaction and help support a cheerful atmosphere.

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.

Mit Herz für Tour For Life

A matter of the heart

I am convinced that this ride (adventure, rather) makes healing possible. I hope to pass my optimism onto 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. Its 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 in Berlin and ride eight weeks through Germany, Swizterland, and Austria. We want to encourage others to join us and positively impact as many people as we can along the way. Our 2000 km route takes us through Dresden, Leipzig, Cologne, Freiburg, Munich, and Passau. Click here for more 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!

  1. Hallo Christian,
    find ich total super die Einstellung zu Deiner Krankheit und die Energie etwas zu machen was Dich erfüllt.
    Ich bin auch eine begeisterte Radlerin bin gottseidank gesund. Bin 2004 von Ulm nach Athen (Olympia) geradelt und es war die schönste Tour meines Lebens.
    Würde gerne unterwegs einsteigen, d.h. in de Ecke Stuttgart-Ulm-München und evtl. bis Istanbul mitradeln.
    Wann ist nochmals der Start?
    Bin 66 Jahre alt und bin vor 3 Wochen in Amsterdam einen Marathon gelaufen, das nur zu meiner Person. Auch arbeite ich immer noch 3 Tage pro Woche.
    Grüsse von Süddeutschland

    • Liebe Ella,

      es freut mich von Dir zu lesen und etwas von Deiner Begeisterung für die Tour zu empfangen.
      Die Streck Berlin-Istanbul musste ich leider aus organisatorischen Gründen auf 2016 verschieben.
      Nächtes Jahr wird dafür die Tour durch Deutschland, die Schweiz und Österreich stattfinden.
      Ich rechne damit, dass wir nach dem Start Anfang Juni in Berlin etwa zwei bis drei Wochen später im Raum Heidelberg/Karslruhe sein werden.
      Von dort aus geht es über die Schweiz und durch das Allgäu nach München wo wir Ende Juni ankommen.
      Du kannst dich auch gerne via E-Mail bei mir melden.
      Ich freue mich von Dir zu hören!
      Christian
